Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 11

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 11

So here it is folks, Day 11, the final day of Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue. I only caught the last three songs from the Temperance Movement but I can tell I missed something special. Anyone who did catch their entire act was talking about it for days. One of the most anticipated acts of Bluesfest, and the first to be […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 10

Day 10 at Ottawa Bluesfest was a long and storied affair. My plan was to start the day with The Beaches. I have been following them for a few years now and had seen them last year at Osheaga. I got in early though and went to Riishi Von Rex and I’m glad I did. They were a great local band […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 9

I went in early for Day 8 of  Ottawa Bluesfest to see The Yips. I was first introduced to The Yips last year at the Arboretum Festival so I knew they were a a great live band and wanted to see more of them. Last year at the Ottawa Folk Festival I was caught completely off guard by a band called Dear […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 8

Day 8 of Ottawa Bluesfest saw one of the biggest names in country music, Keith Urban performing. He certainly drew one of the larger crowds of the season but personally my tastes were more aligned with Mother Mother. They seem to play Bluesfest on a fairly regular basis and I do enjoy catching them there when I can. Personally I first disovered […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 7

I started Day 7 of Ottawa Bluesfest with the Current Swell. I had seen them before, but I was surprised to find their stage performance was much stronger than the last time I had seen them, granted it has been a good number of years since I last saw them. They were a very pleasant surprise for me. I followed the Current […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 6

Day 6 was the start of the second “half” of Ottawa Bluesfest after our one day break. There were some Southern acts that flirted with the controversy of the confederate battle flag but I missed all that because other than Future Islands I was not at either of the main stages. Future Islands have quickly gained a reputation of being an amazing […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 5

Sunday marked Day 5 of Ottawa Bluesfest and the last day before our silent day of rest, but what a great day it turned out to be. Sadly I only caught the end of the OBGMs set because they were fantastic, I will definitely make an effort t see them the next chance I get. They were followed by an act I […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 4

Day 4 kicked off the first weekend of Ottawa Bluesfest. This year the festival started a bit later on the weekends and as a full festival pass holder I did not mind too much because I always had to be a little careful not to overdo it on the weekends. This Saturday had a lot of options available to the music lover. There […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 3

Day 3 at Ottawa Bluesfest saw one of the biggest and most controversial acts in the world headline the festival. As you might guess, Kanye West drew a very significant crowd and it was one of the biggest I have seen in my many years attending Bluesfest. From appearances it appeared to me to be the biggest crowd since KISS performed. […]

Ottawa Bluesfest in Revue – Day 2

Day 2 was a more typical day at Bluesfest than Day 1. There were many different genres in play for you to choose from. The main stages featured quite a bit of country, including local rising star Kira Isabella and mega-star Jason Aldean. But if country was not your thing, there were plenty of options available amongst the other stages. I […]
