Hi Mac,
what a delightful find your site was. I was looking for information regarding the Central Coast Blues Festival in New South Wales, Australia. Our Central Coast is an hour north of Sydney & also where I live. But I stumbled across your site thinking I'd found what I was looking for. It took me back 30 years, when I spent 3 months in CA & quite a lot of time in Santa Cruz. Memories of weekends down in Carmel & Monterey, listening to fantasic live music everywhere I went & whole afternoons on the deck of The Crow's Nest in Santa Cruz drinking daquiri's. Australia came very close to losing me to CA forever:) Then I read the line-up at your CCBF's & was blown away. BBKing, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Cocker & Eric Bibb, just to name a few. My god, we can only dream of having such incredible talent at out little CCBF. And did I see Leon Russell in there too!! Wow, what a line-up. Its almost worth flying over to catch all your festivals. In the meantime, I'll try searching for the CCBF in my neck-of-the-woods.
Thanks for the memories Mac.
