The 18th Blues Across the Bay music festival will be held at the Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre on November 2.
The festival is accessible only by water, with many travelling from Patonga fpr a day of jazz, roots and blues music.
Festival Committee member Mr Ray Laboyrie said the line-up would include Russell Morris, Steve Weston and Minnie Marks.
Mr Laboyrie said: “50 years ago, Russell Morris became the first Australian artist to score consecutive number one singles with his first two releases, The Real Thing, which is one of the classic psychedelic singles of the 60s, and Part Three into Paper Walls.”
Mr Laboyrie said Steve ‘West’ Weston had a solid claim to being London’s top harmonica man.
“His tone is extraordinary, as is his taste and style, and within his chosen field, old style Chicago-West Coast harp playing.”
Tomcat Playground would join Weston as his band for the festival.
Mr Laboyrie said Minnie Marks was an excellent addition to the festival stage.
“As a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, her set will take you on a dizzying, riff rock rollercoaster ride with songs written over the past years of her musical journey around the world.”
Mr Laboyie said tickets for this year’s festival were almost sold out.
He said festival-goers bringing their own boats should check the festival’s website for venue information, including boat docking locations.
