Time is flying by and August 9th will be here before you know it. I’ve been to the first two Gloucester Blues Festivals and look forward to the next one. Located right by the water with and excellent view of the ocean. It is a guaranteed good time by all. What an excellent line up it is! Hope to see you there!
Here are some photos from last years show on August 10th 2013

Bob Hastings, co-producer of the Gloucester Blues Festival, sent me an email this morning saying they just signed Lydia Warren. We saw her open for Savoy Brown at the Bull Run on December 1 (see post about that concert here). Alone on stage with her strat, she captured the crowd with her soulful vitality. At the Blues Fest, she’ll have her full band!
From Lydia’s website:
“Changing the face of the blues” – NBC’s Today Show
Lydia Warren tours internationally from Brooklyn to Beirut, whipping audiences into a frenzy at each stop. A versatile singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer, the Boston-based performer tours and records as a solo act and with her band. The Lydia Warren Band has been nominated for a Boston Music Award, appeared on NBC’s Today Show and has released five albums.

Bob Hastings sent me an email last night announcing the first act to be booked for this year’s Gloucester Blues Festival. His name is Anthony Gomes and he’s a smokin’ guitar player as you can see by the video below.
Here’s the thing: He’s not even the headliner … Whew! This will be a spectacular Blues Festival.
You can’t get tickets yet, but you can save the date, which is August 10 at Stage Fort Park. Remember, you heard it here on GMG first and you can trust GMG to let you know the minute tickets go on sale. In case you’re one of the unfortunates who missed last year’s Blues Fest, see some videos here.
No, you don’t want to miss this year, do you?
