This year is the fifth year for the Fine City Blues Festival, which continues to bring the very best blues artists to Norwich & Norfolk. The main focus for this year’s festival is on British Blues – from the Great British Blues boom of the sixties to the present day and beyond …
Headlining the Festival is the multi-award winning blues diva Dana Gillespie. She has been touring the world as a true ambassador of risqué blues since the sixties. She has supported Bob Dylan and appeared at many festivals throughout Europe, the Middle East and India. Dana is truly an international blues legend. She will be singing with the Dave Thomas Blues Band.
Dave Thomas was right there in the sixties and early seventies when his band once headlined above Fleetwood Mac! The Dave Thomas Blues Band continues to deliver the hard-driving Chicago-style blues that was such a big influence on bands like the Rolling Stones, the Pretty Things, the Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and Led Zeppelin.
Dana and Dave are a powerful blues combination!
