This was the second year for the European Blues Cruise and it was, again, a rousing success. Artists featured on board were Vasti Jackson, Nellie ‘Tiger’ Travis, Lady A, Russ Green, Toronzo Cannon and the Cannonball Express.
Sail away concerts, pro-pro-am jams, different venues were all part of the experience. It is really great to share the love of the Blues with folks from all over the world. France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, England and pretty much most of Europe, very cool indeed. Plus we got to visit the lovely city of Barcelona with our personal tour guide David Preus, as well as his One For The Road Band.
I want to thank Lisa Panoyan for allowing us to be part of this annual event. I was the MC, mostly English errrh, American and a oui bit of French thrown in. Leslie was one of the official photographers on board and here is her collection of nearly 100 snaps – hope ya enjoy it while we are away on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise.
Here is the clickable link to our smugmug page for the European Blues Cruise. Enjoy, and while you are there look over some of our other subjects such as the Daytona Blues Festival, Mavis Staples and more.
