Blues legends of international fame meet in Frederikshavn, Denmark the
first Weekend in November.
Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd of Nov. 2013 “Det Musiske Hus” presents a cornucopia of music. Frederikshavn Bluesfestival stars musicians from the USA, England, Holland, Spain, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
Blues rock and soul lovers won’t want to miss:
• Earl Thomas – USA
The American super vocalist, composer, producer and entertainer Earl Thomas from San Diego, has visited the Djurs Bluesland festival 3 times before and it is great to have this beloved performer back.
• Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King – USA.
The band, consisting of the rough Texas guitarist Smokin’ Joe and the soulful voice from California Bnois King, has played together for over 20 years and has published a dozen springy blues/ rock albums.
• Eddie “The Chief” Clearwater – USA.
The 78 year old blues legend ”The Chief” is one of the great old Chicago icons. He masters both the flamboyant show and the melancholic deep dark blue shades of the blues music.
• West Coast Blues Masters - USA
The fact that the festival can finally introduce Junior Watson, Fred Kaplan, Richard Innes and Kedar Roy on the same stage, is a dream come true!
• Eric Sardinas - USA
Eric Sardinas was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is known for setting fire to his guitar and has previously caused third-degree-burns to himself, so he is a wild card!
• Mike Sanchez - UK
Pianist, guitarist and singer Mike Sanchez is the epitome of “British Dynamite”.
• Ron Hacker - USA
Ron Hacker was born 1945 in Indianapolis, Indiana. In the sixties he heard Elmore James for the first time and immediately loved his deep form of blues.
Festival organizer Peter Astrup from Blues.dk declares “the great musical experiences, the fantastic and intimate atmosphere have always been the trade mark of the festival. It is for a lot of people more than “blue” music and with this year’s line up of sweating blues, rock, soul, boogie-woogie and gospel in all its magnificent shades, even the most choosy fan has to surrender. What unites this year’s artists is the fact that they all are best in their field.”
This year’s festival in Frederikshavn, Denmark the 1st and 2nd of November 2013, is the 8th in the line. The price of admission is as low as from DKK 295, - (€52).
This year again there is an agreement with the hotels in Frederikshavn to offer a discount on festival packages including hotel stay with breakfast. Last year this offer was a huge success and all the hotels in Frederikshavn area were fully booked.
