Yes, the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest starts today. Hooray! :)
The blues is one of my favourite genres of music ever, and I love different styles of Blues music. One of the great things about the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest is the sheer variety of music presented at this 2-week festival of music, and sheer number of folks that come to the festival.
Some of the artists that I really want to see from this year's line-up, in no particular order, include: Amanda Rheaume, Renaissance, The Mighty Popo, Maria Hawkins Blues Band, The Moody Blues, Babe Ruth, Metric, Steve Marriner - and that's just the first week's stuff!
So, there's some really good music coming up at the BluesFest here in Ottawa over the next two weeks. I just hope I can see some of the acts that I'd love to see perform.
Now, if only Thea Gilmore and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy would play the festival, I'd be happy! :)
