And just like that we'd once again come to the end of the Byron Bay Bluesfest. As the event's fifth day, it's fair to say that by now we were both exhausted and used to the exciting lifestyle that the festival offers. It's never an easy event to say goodbye to, especially after a year that housed one of its best lineups ever, and was without a doubt the best Bluesfest we've ever attended. Although my sore, sore feet beg to differ.

Day Four of Bluesfest, on Easter Sunday, kicked off with a bang with an explosive performance by Mason Rock Band as they delivered raucous Aussie blues rock. Featuring an intense mix of percussion, double bass, guitars and boisterous vocals, the band played to a packed out tent filled with enthusiastic listeners. Bringing out a whole lot of cheek, these guys put on a stomping, all Aussie show.
When our tickets were scanned at the doors of the Entertainment Centre, it felt as though we’d been gifted with an express pass back to the golden age of rock. Setting our eyes upon the stage, the pants were looser, the torso covered, his somewhat greying locks still yet to be tamed. This was the voice of a generation: Robert Plant live and in the flesh.
Larry Heath talks to Liam McGorry from Melbourne Soul/R&B ensemble Saskwatch backstage at the 2013 Blues and Roots Festival in Byron Bay (Bluesfest) about their new single, returning to Europe, playing Bluesfest and much more.
