The Notodden Blues Festival 2019 – Little Steven and his Disciples of Soul, Dumdum Boys, Supersonic Bues Machine, Billy Gibbons, Eric Gale and more






Another Notodden Blues Festival is over, and this was my 25th anniversary at the festival – easily on my top three list of all of them. The weather was excellent, many tickets sold, the bands and artists were great and I got to meet good friends and acquaintances. What more can you ask for? (Photo above: Steven van Zandt and the Mostar School of Rock.

The festival had a bad year economically last year, and they couldn’t get another year like that without a serious danger if having to shut down. In that perspective it was a great pleasure to see that they had succeeded in many of the changes they instigated this year, and that the result was a much better result. The Notodden Blues Festival is an important festival for the blues and blues related music – not only for Norway, but actually worldwide, too. So now we can look forward to a new festival next year, too.

Here are my photos of the bands I saw and some of the activities at the festival this year.
