Good start - need to add some more of the girls. Lots of votes for Tracey Chapman. Add in Etta James, Koko Taylor, Joan Armatrading, Shemekia Copeland, Ruthie Foster, Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, etc. etc............... Feel like I've said all this in another lifetime on the old, old board.
Think late night Tom Waits would be a magic Bluesfest moment to remember.

Totally agree about adding some more woman...

I have just returned from the Narooma Festival over the last long weekend and the act/s which blew me away was the Blues Empress USA Ladies Revue AKA...Fiona Boyes, Sue Foley and Diunna Greenleaf.

Sue Foley's stage presence, guitar and vocals as well as her passion for the music where absolutely outstanding and she said she would love to return to Byron when I got a chance to talk to her. If you haven't heard of Diunna think a young Marva Wright...what a voice, she didn't need the microphone. Diunna engaged everybody with her on stage personality which I think would be the same as her off-stage one. Fiona turned up the heat on her own performance and played with as much passion and expression as I have ever seen her play. With an all-star Aussie backing band including Allison Penny on Keyboards, Hans Deberitz on Bass, a great young sax player Niles Rosedahl.

What about Susan Tedeschi and while she's coming out why not her partner Derek Trucks who is coming with his whole band to the Adelaide Guitar Festival later this year?

There is so much great music out there which rarely gets an airing here in Australia, the 20th anniversary of Bluesfest is a great opportunity to let people hear some great stuff.

Amen to Anthony's comments re Boyes, Foley & Greenleaf at Narooma.

Also Susan Tedeschi gets my vote, along with Lucinda, Welch & Rawlings, Emmylou etc...

Finally - Patti Smith was great at the Opera House last week. She still has the distinctive voice (which has if anything developed into a much more powerful instrument) and the passion & attitude - I suspect the SOH "roadies" haven't had to clean spit off the stage too often (ignoring brass players of course - which one does at one's peril). Plus a hot band, especially Lenny Kaye.

Maybe 09 should have a female focus?

Some blues women - Ellen McIlwaine (how many other people have played with Hendrix....and Jack Bruce has been one of her bass players, he could come too) and Ana Popovic (who refers to Stevie Ray and Ronnie Earle as her influences) and Susan Tedeschi (with her husband Derek Trucks, as well and the rest of the Allman Brothers band and Derek's band). They are all impressive, especially Ana. And about time for Candye Kane again.

Jeremy Spencer - great blues player (ex Fleetwood Mac, when they played blues), why not Peter Green as well.

Duke Robillard and Ronnie Earle Project (following Carleton & Ford, Duke & Clarke).

Big band??? Brian Setzer and his orchestra.

Folk - Blackmore's Night


Blues again - Bernard Allison, Govt Mule (also have Allman Bro guitarist),

Dirty Dozen Brass Band
Jeff Beck
J J Cale
Charlie Hunter

and Dan Granero (www.myspace.com/dangranero)

Thought I'd add a couple of touring giants from the USA - Phish and Widespread Panic. Would love some big jammin' sounds this Easter!



Trumpet bells ringing
Bass drum is swinging
As the trombone groans
And the big horn moans

Quicksilver Messenger Service
Jefferson Starship
Greg Allman......The Allman Brothers (who aren't touring much this year but hopefully in 2009)
The Outlaws

Thanks Izzy for the sad reminder that Duane Allman died many years ago. I am fairly certain it was a motorbike accident. The music of this great band has never died.........an anthology.......a classic. There's not much I don't like from that era (Filmore East, West etc, etc, etc), including your suggestions........... and that was basically my point when I posted on the forum. There are some of us who just aren't too good for remembering names.

I am hoping any of the living/active members of The Band- say Levon Helm on the Thursday night; Chain; some reggae-K-Os; and if the dollar falls, wouldn't it be a dream to have Van Morrison close the Monday night - rewarding the 5 day ticketholders with a set of apt bookends. Cheers

Ok, no more tired and predictable acts.

How about these:

James McMurtry - Superb gritty Texan singer songwriter
Drive By Truckers - Southern gothic rock at its best
Ronnie Earl - Forget Clapton!
Stephen Bruton - Slick blues and soul/funk for grown-ups from south Austin TX
Susan Tedeschi - Move over Bonnie Raitt
Lucinda Williams - Need I say more
Widespead Panic - Lets have some kosmic jammin'
Delbert McClinton - The Texan country/soul/blues master
Da Fabulous Thunderbirds - Of course!
Derek Trucks - Susan Tedeschi's husband and superb slide player in the style of Duane Allman

Yep, BKB would be awesome. Also a good little melbourne band called Zak and the Greater Good. Nice rootsy tunes with a definite undertone of funk... Bring back Dave Matthews Band and Bela Fleck, as well as MR Mayer... Carus and the True Believers would go down a treat too...
