Each year for the past few years Peter has promised the "best bluesfest ever" and each time he has come up with the goods and 2013 certainly looks to be keeping up the record. Short of having Jimi and Stevie Ray playing in James Brown's showband, I don't know how this progression can continue. Just like one day we'll have to admit that never-ending economic growth is unsustainable, maybe we will have to accept that we may never get a future line-up as good as 2013. I'd still be very keen to keep showing up to "nearly the best bluesfest ever" in future though.

The best ever progression can continue in 2014 by having Leonard Cohen performing in Mojo-every night.

When they go low-we go high.

Or perhaps move a couple of shows to the juke joint for that more intimate feeling. I imagine it would be getting very intimate in there with the size crowd he would attract.

if he can persuade JONI MITCHELL to do a 1 off show next year, that will top the last few years for me.

I'm really starting to think that BFest people, while being lovely folk, are all stuck in the past. With the exception of Tom Waits there's very few "legends" that make me excited. Lets face it, while it's a wonderful feeling to be in the presence of the history makers such as those who have been mentioned thus far in this thread, most of them haven't really got the edge any more and are well past their use-by date.

Don't get me wrong, I'm lovin' this years line-up with all it's "yesterday-men" as I enjoy reliving my youth as much as the next guy...it's just that I enjoy discovering and listening to new legends way more.

My top 10 BBBf performances to date (in no particular order) Jake Simbabukuro<sp?> Newton Falkner, Jason Mraz, Paulo Nuttini, Piers Faccini, Amos Lee, Marshall and the Fro, Ngarii, Te Vaka, Old Crow Medicine Show. Bring 'em all back in 2014 I say. (Along with Jake Bugg)

No he has not been to a Leonard Cohen Concert recently.
He is making weird comments just to stir us up.

Yep, two in-fact, and it was absolutely stunning. It was brilliantly conceived and executed, the arrangements were the best I have ever heard of his songs, the line-up was out-of-this-world in terms of talent, and the production was stunning. All of which says a lot more for Roscoe Beck than it does for the Leonardmeister.

Of course it's true to say that while Roscoe Beck was the genius that drew out Cohens genius better than any other time in his career, it can still only be done once...I've seen it twice....moving on.... Anxious

Er, your wrong sorry... I been to two! One in Christchurch one in Auckland.

Probably right about the "stirring up" but that does not mean I was being disingenuous. I sincerely believe what I have said about all these "old acts"......

i agree with bucetti, the nutini-faccini combination is the best defensive combination bologna has had in quite a while.Liar

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Bonnie Casey
Daniel Champange
Jess Maubouy
Joss Stone
Warrior Prince
Reece Mastin

The fact that Maccain09 is your ally reinforces my observation.
I also suspect you may be a musican.

As for patriotism, now that The Red Eyes are performing again,let's get them back to Bluesfest.
