International Line-Up Confirmed For 2017 Nevis Blues Festival

Typically when we talk the "blues" in Nevis, we’re talking about the bright blue skies and various shades of turquoise and azure of the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. But every April, the blues takes on a very different meaning as a host of internationally known blues artists make their way to Oualie Beach for a two-night "Blues in Paradise" festival of incredible blues music.

Soul blues funkster AJ Ghent (US), multi-instrumentalist Deanna Bogart (US), and boogey-woogey pianist Ben Waters (UK) are among the artists who will be playing at the festival, Friday and Saturday, April 7 & 8, 2017. They will be joined by several performers who are back by popular demand, including Nevis’ own blues to gospel diva, Denise Gordon, Britain’s most award-decorated bluesman, Ian Siegel, and uber blues rock guitarist Simon McBride.

"Travelers looking for a Nevis vacation would do well to choose this time of year to be able to enjoy this very special event," says Greg Phillip, CEO of the Nevis Tourism Authority which helps to sponsor the event. "It’s two perfect nights of music on the beach under the stars that will surely be a memorable experience."
