for the last 4 years ,my wife and i have bought our sons bluesfest tickets for xmas.this year after the 1st announcement,my 21 and 19-y-o decided
maybe not as there was not that many artists they wanted to see.(they were also into many other festivals this summer).then-2nd announcement
they showed interest-jack johnson,ozamatli etc. so while 2010 looks one of the best years for me (and this is my 21st bluesfest)i think it so far
is geared at an older audience.so the addition of YOUNGER artists can only be good to reach a wider age group. myself,i will have so many must sees its not funny. colin hay is a great performer as is ross wilson-artists so many festival goers may have never seen or heard of.to me 2010 returns to the GREAT bluesfests.hopefully with my sons.

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

It also means that we older folk can enjoy the likes of Lyle Lovett etc without the 'youngin's' talking on their mobile phones to their mates, telling them that they're at BluesFest having an AWESOME time (and not hearing any of the music) - they'll all be off seeing Jack.

Perhaps that was the reason for the spurious pre-promotion about a world wild exclusive - it really was for us old folk - being given an opportunity to not have to go to Mojo!

Oops - is that too cynical or sarcastic (note: there is NO attempted humour here)
