In typical Bluesfest fashion it’s a truly eclectic mix of heritage artists, festival favorites and exciting new comers. And if that wasn’t enough to get you excited, let me tell you thist Youssou N’Dour is coming with his 20 piece band of musicians, singers and acrobats to play Bluesfest on Good Friday in what will surely be remembered as one of the most spectacular performances ever at the festival. Ever.
