You should put this post on the "relevance of the forum" thread. This is one of the major reasons I just love this forum. People like you putting clips like this on.

Thoroughly enjoyed it so thank you.

I fully concur. No better place to discover new music than with passionate music lovers (which this forum seems to be full of.

.....and what a wonderfully vibrant clip this is to go with some great vibrant music.

The black man had the blues

For 40 years there have been 5 musicians that I’ve always considered “special” (6 if you count The Beatles). Those ones that, regardless of whoever you’re into at the time, you keep going back to. I love listening to them now as much as I did 40 years ago.

Roy Buchanan, Taj Mahal, Rodrigeous, David Bromberg, Joe McDonald.

I’ve seen the first 4 and I would dearly love to see the last one, Joe McDonald (Country Joe McDonald). His catalogue of music is phenomenal. He’s produced an absolutely amazing array of music styles. His “Fixing to Die Rag” was the anti Vietnam War mantra of the 60/70s. He’s getting on (he was a Woodstock performer) and the chances of me ever seeing him are rapidly diminishing.

So that’s my request – Joe McDonald

I would greatly appreciate it Bluesfest.

Roy Buchanan .
I remember seeing Roy roughly 35 years ago.
A brilliant guitarist (Fender telecaster).
Yes -Special is the right word for Roy

Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, a group suggested to me by my son. Bit of blues, soul, rock and funk. Great to listen to. Fun band to listen to at Byron in 2019.

And should have Marcus King Band....... both bands have supported Gov't Mule.

Here's a few ideas some of which may be a bit out of left field:

Donald Fagin. Following the death of Walter Becker last year it'd be great to have Donald here to play the music of Steeley Dan as a tribute to Walter.

Jeff Lynne. This would be a double treat. The music of both ELO and the Travelling Wilburys. I know Bob Dylan is still alive but he's already been to Bluesfest.

Kris Kristofferson. Another double treat. Kris' own music as well as that of The Highwaymen. I doubt we'd get Willie Nelson to Australia but his son Lukas will be here so maybe he could join Kris for a song or two.

Ry Cooder. I can't remember his ever playing at Bluesfest.

A couple of big name performers who've never been to Bluesfest and have instant name recognition to get the punters in: Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen.

And some Australian acts as well: Midnight Oil. CW Stoneking. The Whitlams. The Bondi Cigars. Pugsley Buzzard and the Devils Orchestra. And that's just for starters. Plenty more names will come to mind as I give it further thought.

Our tastes align. More power to you, to which I would add Paul Rodgers, Jamiroquai and Hall and Oates.!

Thanks, Rod. And I agree that it'd be great to have Paul Rodgers, Jamiroquai and Hall and Oates at Bluesfest.

Fleetwood Mac would be cool for 2019 and apparently Neil Finn is now in the band. Eh?

And Mike Campbell from Tom Pettys band! Stevie Nicks did once say she wanted to join Petty’s band so this is not a bad outcome for her at least.
