23rd Internationales Bluesfest Eutin
May 17 – 20, 2012
By Aigars Lapsa
The 23rd Internationales Bluesfest Eutin or ”Blues Baltica” was held May 17 – 20, in Eutin, Germany. It was my fourth visit and is one of the favorite festivals. There is a wonderful atmosphere created by organizer Helge Nickel and it is free. This year motto was “Blues from all continents” and it offered a worldwide unique program. Perhaps for the first time in the history of the blues this was a program with blues acts from all continents united at one festival: Asia (India), South America (Brazil), Europe (Denmark, Germany, Poland, and Sweden), North America (US, Canada), Africa (Cameroon and Morocco), and Australia. Among the fourteen or more acts, some of the most recognizable names were Cee Cee James, Colin Linden, Igor Prado, Shawn Pittman, and, of course, many Baltic artists.
Blues Baltica featured many great artists. Blues Revue and BluesWax Photographer Aigars Lapsa was there at this truly international festival. On this week’s Photo Page Aigars shares some of his many photographs from the festival, focusing on Colin Linden from Canada and Igor Prado from Brasil.
