Over 45 artists and 120 musicians are lined-up to perform at this year’s Blues at Bridgetown festival, which will kick off on November 8.

The festival is expected to draw big crowds to the region for the weekend, with tickets now on sale from the website.

Renowned Australian artist Mark Lizotte, better known as Diesel, will make his third appearance at the festival this year and said he was looking forward to performing.

“I have been to the festival twice before and I love it, it is a really good festival and I have some great memories from my previous times performing,” he said. “I also really enjoy hearing all the other musicians play, there is a cacophony of things happening and it really brings the town to life.”

Lizotte will be performing a range of songs, from his older work through to music from his EP, released this year.

“Performing is different each night, it is both wonderful and challenging,” he said. “I am really looking forward to coming back to WA and experiencing the Blues at Bridgetown again.”

Russell Morris, Tracey Barnett, Applejack and Moonshine and Ash Grunwald are also part of the line-up.
