    A friend was just telling me that Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Elvis Costello of all people were among the performers at this year's Ottawa Blues Fest. Are all the blues singers retired?

    Tho I wish I could be there! [​IMG]

    All the old blues singers aren't retired. They just come to the Edmonton blues festival, not Ottawa's.[​IMG]
    Seriously, I have heard that Ottawa's festival is not just blues. They also bring in some bigger name headliner's that are not blues. I think Sting played there a few years ago.

    Regards
