Should be there every year.
I agree with you Mr Bond,Vasti Jackson should be asked for next year.One of this year's best guitarists.

When they go low-we go high.

My first suggestion is to book all the 2017 artists and repeat the same lineup for 2018.
My second suggestion is in regard to the three first timers which I would most like to see again.
Gallant,The Suffers,California Honeydrops.

This is where this was meant to go (not guitar slingers thread!!)



BOB DYLAN

the album trilogy of American Standards he's released over the last couple of years is brilliant (including the very recent triple album Triplicate)
His last tour here was dynamite (check the reviews!!!)

Haha, don't think he's suitable for Bluesfest but he was more than a one hit wonder.

Hyperactive and She Blinded Me With Science were both big hits buy yeah he has more of a cult following these days.

I really wanted Loretta Lynn this year or next but now that she's had a stroke its unlikely she'll come here at all.

So I'm really hoping for Dolly Parton for 2018.

Aussiecroc, The Royal Southern Brotherhood are not touring. They appear to have broken up.

Loretta Lynn is a fantastic idea.
Given that is unrealistic,there is an obvious solution.
Book Eilen Jewell again.
She has after all,recorded a tribute album to Loretta Lynn & has done a very fine job.
