Legendary Lithuanian festival BLIUZO NAKTYS this summer (7-8th of July) will celebrate 25th anniversary. Today it’s announced few more names of bands and artists.
Big intrigue hangs on “Kris Barras Band” from UK. Kris was already making an appearance on stage before turning 10. Now behind him – more than 20 years thrilling audiences throughout the globe playing live. The UK based guitarist has extensive experience touring in various bands, throughout the UK, Europe and USA, as both a solo-artist & session-musician.
Festival Blues Nights is held in Varniai for 24 years and is famous for its free spirit and the sense of brotherhood. Even the biggest blues music stars are surprisingly simple, and their list of requirements does not raise any concerns. “Sometimes we even ask more than once, whether or not everything is sufficient to the extent that is specified in the artist’s rider” – laughs the organizer Algirdas Barniškis-Blėka. He likes the simplicity of the stars, and while organizing other festivals, he had a lot of different experience and is accustomed to the most bizarre foreign artists and their needs, Blėka continues to wonder: “No bizarre needs?” In return, he is preparing a pleasant surprise for the musicians behind the scene – personally cooked “chili con carne” stew in the back of the stage.
