We are presently a few days away from the Nevis Blues Festival! Three nights of pulsating music performed by American, British, regional and local performers. This festival will be what is believed to be the regions first blues music festival.
The Nevis Blues Festival is scheduled for April 16 to 19 at the Sundowner Stage in the island’s Oualie Bay district. The festival will feature highlights such as award-winning musician and British blues hall of famer Ian Siegal; Zac Harmon, recently named XM Satellite Radio’s “Best New Blues Artist,” and U.K.-based jazz, gospel and blues singer Denise Gordon, whose parents are from Nevis.
“We’re excited to premiere the Nevis Blues Festival as our newest cultural offering,” said Mark Brantley, Nevis’ minister of tourism. “Our aim is to present a highly anticipated annual event that celebrates both local and international talent while reflecting the beauty and cultural experience of Nevis.”
The event is meant to be a magical and intimate experience says the organizers. A setting where the audience is intoxicated by the sounds of soothing blues music with the sights and sounds of the Caribbean Sea in the background.
