Gig Information

There aren’t too many artists producing soul music today who had a release in 1969; Lee Fields, however, is one such phenomenon, and it’s mindblowing that the music he’s making today is the best of his career. For almost half a century, the North Carolina native has amassed a prolific catalogue of albums and has toured with such legends as Kool & the Gang, Sammy Gordon & the Hip-Huggers and O.V. Wright. Performing tracks from his most triumphant album yet, Special Nights, backed by The Expressions, Fields’ raucous-yettender voice will ring out at the Festival Playground.

Hailed as “the real thang” by the legendary Bootsy Collins, Jack Broadbent routinely wows audiences with his unique blend of virtuosic slide guitar and poignant folk and blues-inspired vocals. He has performed worldwide with artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and Johnny Hallyday, and has three fulllength albums under his belt. As an authentic blues musician, he brings a warmth, humour and energy to his performances, as well as a deep connection to his musical influences in, amongst others, John Lee Hooker, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.

This is a rain, hail or shine outdoor standing event.
