CANBERRA BLUES SOCIETY PRESENTS
INTERNATIONAL BLUES MUSIC DAY
SATURDAY | 3 AUGUST 2019
IBMD is held on the first Saturday in August each year with the inaugural celebration held on 3 August 2013.
The initiative was the brainchild of world renowned blues musician Johnny Childs who also starred in the film ‘The Junkman’s Son’ and was the founding President of the NYC Blues Society.
Canberra Blues Society is just one of the many associations across Australia supporting this international event that celebrates the Blues, including its many icons, legends & pioneers, whilst giving the new generation of Blues artists the opportunity to showcase their take on modern day Blues.
This is our biggest event of the year with performances by local & interstate artists on two stages, stalls & exhibitions.
Saturday 3 August
Show starts: 12 PM
Attended and played at the Blues jam today. It’s 42 years since I last played in Canberra and what a great experience I had. What impressed me the most was the friendliness and acceptance of the other musos there. I got to play with the exceptional Dan Fernandes for the first time which was a real pleasure plus other great players. Can’t wait to come down again for another jam. Thanks to everyone involved.
We had a blast! See you all again soon.
The Black Hat Band
Last night @ the Narrabundah Harmonie German Club monthly Canberra Blues Society! No practice at all together with these guys before getting up on stage, it was a spontaneous set. I was blessed to be performing with such brilliant players.
