Mitchell Creek Rock 'N' Blues Fest

Blueskillet Rovers

Enjoy the bass sounds of the 'bull-fiddle', the twang of a banjo, finger-pickin' geetar, snare and percussion, kazoo, silly bit's 'n' pieces, harmonica and voice.

Cookin' up a blues storm the folks from Kids Blues Workshops, the Hoochers and Ragweed are combining various blues ingredients, to bring you a fun filled 'Roving' show.

A culmination of songs from 30s till now. Jugblues, jazzblues, bluesblues, ragblues, soulblues and sillyblues.

‘The Rovers’ are renowned for not using, and in fact boycotting, the use of any electricity in as many of their performances as possible, (except to power fridges for beers and bourbon – rehydration fluids) in the aim to keep the music ‘alive’ with the use of good old acoustic instruments…and a shit load of energy!! This really allows the audience to BE a part of the show…the band can mingle with the crowd, and the audience can get right up close to the performers.

Blueskillet were a huge success at Woodford Folk FestivalByron Blues and Roots Festival and Broadbeach Blues Festival in 2006. They were also winners of ‘Blues Over Byron Busking Festival’ in the street performers category, affording them a spot performing to thousands of people on the streets of the Byron Blues and Roots Festival. Yee Ha!
