    Blues on Broadbeach on the Gold Coast is a 4 day event that is free of charge and features some of Australia's best blues artists although this year, it ventured more into blues and roots as is happening with a lot of 'blues' festivals these days.

    Because of other commitments, I did not see as much as I would like to and was only able to get down there on Sunday morning. However I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the following artists:

    Juzzie Smith - a great one man band entertainer playing slide guitar, harp and drums. Great entertainment and he did a really strirring version of the good Aussie iconic song Waltzing Matilda.

    Nick Charles - an Australian acoustic blues artist with some great guitar work as well as a few vocals. He is from Melbourne but has come to my attention recently with his great new album Into the blues from which he played quite a few tracks. Fantastic artist and I look forward to seeing him again especially as I had a front row seat!
