【 Gloomy Island Blues Festival X Touchwoods – The Gloomy Island Blues Festival 2019 】

The countryside was the birthplace of blues and all kinds of folk music.

【 The Gloomy Island Blues Festival X Touchwoods - 慘島藍調節 2019 】

鄉郊是藍調及各種民謠音樂的搖籃。曾經受盡壓迫的黑奴在阡陌田間藉藍調解鬱悶,晚上孤獨的旅人則在營火旁吟唱民謠來獲取慰籍。難以言
喻的哀愁、蔓草荒煙的鄉郊境象,成為民謠藍調的寫照。

今年11月微涼的秋風下,今年「慘島藍調節」離開城市,仿佛回到百年前的美國,與露營發燒友「Touchwoods」聯手合作,將藍調帶進新界鄉郊草原,舉辦一場兩日一夜的戶外音樂節!我們以藍調與營火和自己對話,任愁緒化成一縷青煙。草原藍調,人生幾何?放下都市的煩囂,期待在營火旁和你度過一個美麗的晚上!

慘島藍調節今年集結四方豪傑,除了目不暇給的工作坊外,誓要帶給你一場別開生面的音樂會,共同感受藍調音樂解愁舒懷的魅力。

強大的本地藍調及民謠音樂演出陣容:
.香港藍調殿堂級人物Tommy Chung
.強勁的藍調搖滾三重奏DJ Star
.擁有豐富靈魂與藍調底蘊的歌手Sonia Raphael
.富有三角洲藍調影響的藍調人Roy Stark
.帶點怪誕又富有藍調特色的民謠音樂人Evan Binkley及他的組合The Hoy Tune
.鄉謠/藍調/獨立音樂唱作人Tomii Chan
.精通多種藍調風格的Ram Cheung、口琴手Angus Tang以及滑弦結他專家Isaac So
