2018 Adventure Bay Blues and Roots Festival
The Queens birthday long weekend is nearly here and that means its time for Adventure Bay to host the small but mighty Adventure Bay Blues and Roots festival. The festival is an experience like no other in Tasmania. With Tickets capped at 250, and about 50 musicians, the intimate and warm community feel is a welcome break from the ultra trendy urban festivals.
2018 is the year of the guitar. Festival guru Pete Cornelius joins forces with Australian legend Shannon Bourne for what will be a fantastic showing of the versatility of the humble guitar in the hands of talented musicians. The Ross Sermons Band hit the stage for the first time this year with his signiture delta blues voice and guitar craft. Launceston's country crooners Cotton Pony and The Bad Dad Orchestra show what small towns can do for your creativity. Rockabilly dudes The Raccoons and Lagoon Hill Zydeco return to the island and Miss Jones and Hamish Jetson make their festival debut.
The much loved Jam night is once again hosted by everyone's favourite guitar preacher David Eddo Edmonson, and his band Yesterday's Gentlemen, along with Rod Murray and crowd favourites The Firmm.
