Day three of 2022 Byron Bay Bluesfest was another action-packed extravaganza.
Mama Kin Spender enchanted us with the collaboration between Mama Kin and Tommy Spender. With a choir in tow from Mullumbimby, they touched hearts and fed our souls.

One of the finds of the festival so far has been Christone “Kingfish” Ingram from Mississippi. He is only 22 and blew my mind with his skills on the guitar. It’s no wonder there is such a buzz about him.
All Our Exes Live in Texas, as always delighted with their harmonies and banter.
Baker Boy blew us away with his energy. His performance was definitely one of the highlights.
Amy Shark had a legion of fans, and was in a buoyant mood. Her stage show is always impressive, and with the killer vocals to match, was a crowd favourite.
Morcheeba – was truly exceptional. Skye Edwards has an incredible voice, amazing dance moves, and the band was tight and moody. It had been a long day, but it was invigorating and captivating.
Finally, Paul Kelly took us on an emotional journey. Starting with “Finally Something Good” from his Life is Fine album, it summed up the mood perfectly. It moved Paul to tears, and that was contagious., Ninety minutes of pure pleasure from one of our finest songwriters followed.
