15th July – Bendigo Blues and Roots Showcase

After another brilliant November Bendigo Blues & Roots Music Festival in 2016, 2017’s supporting events will again be limited in number but packed with even more fresh talent and brilliant music, at some of our favourite local venues – our Winter Showcase/Fundraiser event for this year will again be at the Golden Vine Hotel.

The packed list of acts confirmed to perform at this year’s BB&RMF Winter Showcase event includes some of Bendigo’s best, along with some fresh faces and exciting sounds from the larger blues, soul, jazz and original music circuits who’ve put their respective hands up to support our not-for-profit community music festival.
