Blues Guide Chicago

24. Dezember 2013 - Daniel Lütolf

A chilly Lucerne, nestled by a pristine lake high in the picturesque Swiss mountains, welcomes the hottest blues talent to its festival every November since 1994.

The line-up for the big festival weekend is composed of artists drawn from many parts of the blues world, but it’s no surprise that the Chicago scene usually provides some of the most exciting acts - after all Chicago and Lucerne have been culturally linked sister cities for over 15 years!  This year was no exception, with a bill containing a smattering of BMA and Grammy winners; a handful of blues ladies, some guitar gurus and harmonica heroes; music from the Crescent City to Chi-town, from West Coast to East.
