Vancouver Island Blues Bash will be entering its 24th year in 2017. Blues Bash features blues and R & B artists/bands in both free and paid admission performances, taking place over three afternoons and two - three nights.
MATT SCHOFIELD has set the blues world ablaze with his fresh and passionate take on the genre. Bursting onto the scene in 2004 with his first trio record, The Trio, Live, Schofield demonstrated a phenomenal connection with the classic blues sounds on the ‘60s. This incredibly gifted guitarist makes his Blues Bash debut with his band.
THE HARPOONIST & THE AXE MURDERER are relentless touring artists known for their high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances. Famous for gritty, blues-rock grooves framed by psychedelic landscapes and world-ending jam-outs, this top Canadian blues band has shared the stage with Mother Mother, Taj Mahal, Booker T Jones, and Serena Ryder. They return to Blues Bash as a four-piece band. Opening for The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer and representing a new era of British blues rock are THE VILLANOVAS.
