Just awarded with the “Keeping the Blues Alive Award” from the United States the BluesBaltica Festival will again present blues musicians of international standing at the Marquet Square in Eutin (Germany). From 14th to 17th May 2015 young musicians from 12 European countries will perform according to the theme “Modern Europe”, combining traditional Blues with modern styles. The festival is a unique happening in many ways: It is not only the biggest blues festival in Germany and the first one in the country which received the “Keeping the Blues Alive Award” by the Blues Foundation which is seen as one of the most important prizes in the world of blues but also an admission free open air festival which heavily features Baltic countries.
Visitors of the 26th festival edition can, among others, look forward to the Nick Moss Band and Earl Thomas & The Royal Guard from the US, the Norwegian Blueskollektivet, the Kraków Street Band from Poland, the Danish Blues Overdrive and one highlight from Germany, the The Adriano BaTolba Orchester, the only Rockabilly Orchestra in Europe.
In addition to the open air music performances there will be the famous “Nightsessions” at the “Brauhaus” market square, offering special concerts and jam sessions after the official festival schedule. Besides there will be a high grade photo exhibition with pictures from Swiss artist Rémy Steinegger which will be on display as from 13th May at "Café Klausberger". More additional events will be announced soon.
