The popular Blues at Bridgetown festival made its third and final line-up announcement, with artists including 19-Twenty, Blue Shaddy and Rick Steele set to play. The 31st edition of the local blues weekend, on the weekend of November 10 to November 12, had previously announced returning artist Kim Churchill, local musician Tracey Barnett, soul singer Jesse Redwing, and Grant Haua & The Soul Decree. Groove-based blue and roots band 19-Twenty have been long-time members of the Blues at Bridgetown festival, touring seven times around Australia and throughout Europe. They are known for groove-based blue-billy-grass-rockin’-roots sound and infectious riffs. Blues at Bridgetown legends Blue Shaddy, who have gained fans far and wide on their festival circuits, will also make an appearance at this year’s festival, bringing their country, blues and rock stylings and their collection of infectious tunes. Blue Shaddy guitarist, singer and main songwriter Jim McClelland blends elements of blues, country and rock in his writing, creating a whirlpool of foot-stomping infectious energy. Taking you from a smoky, whiskey-soaked blues lounge to funky town before winding up drinking moonshine in the all-in haystack hoedown, Blue Shaddy is expected to leave audiences entertained and dancing all night. Self-taught 17-year-old Perth multi-instrumentalist Mitch Santiago will be performing at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany as well as dates in London, Rotterdam and Amsterdam before heading back to Western Australia for Blues at Bridgetown. He has released a series of songs amassing more than four million streams, which have also been played by triple J and other radio stations around the glove.
