The Bristol Bluesmen return this year to pay homage to the greats of the British Blues Boom of the 1960s. This was the decade when the electric blues took the UK by storm, popularised by the likes of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones.
In a unique collaboration for the festival, six of the South West’s premier blues players will recreate the sounds of an era that saw the blues explode into the mainstream, bringing the electric guitar to the fore and changing the face of popular music forever.
