40th Anniversary Blues Gala

40th Anniversary Blues Gala image

Maggie Bell, Tim Elliot, Bernie Marsden, Sandy Tweeddale and many more

To mark the Festival’s 40th Anniversary, some of our favourite Blues musicians have put together a special programme packed with little features, special one-offs, and  unique moments. There’ll be blues from the delta, electric blues from Chicago, full on blues-rock, and most styles in between.

We’re delighted that two of Scotland’s all time blues greats, Maggie Bell and Tim Elliot, are heavily featured, and that we’ve already got an amazing line up, with ex-Whitesnake guitar hero, Bernie Marsden; ex-Blues n’Trouble lead guitarist, Sandy Tweeddale; and top US harpist, Brandon Santini making a special appearance, with more acts still to be announced. Check the web site for the final line-up
