The Echuca Moama Winterblues Festival, that is. And what an awesome holiday Ryan and I had. Ten days in all, via Melbourne and Geelong first, and then back up to Echuca so he could participate in the Blues Boot Camp, which was followed by the festival, the 18th running of this terrific event. I was alerted to its existence by wonderful friends who have recently moved to the town, who will welcome you at the National Holden Motor Museum if you’re in Echuca, which I highly recommend.
Following the concert that marked the end of the Boot Camp and the start of the festival proper, Ryan was invited to play with professional musician Wayne Jury at his gigs on Saturday and Sunday. Mind you, there were no rehearsals, the plan was simply “we’ll play some standard twelve bar stuff”, but to watch these performances, you’d never know.
We had such a fantastic time in Echuca, we can’t wait to return next year.
There are six videos in all, and I highly recommend them all. Proud Dad, y’know.
