The Blue Souls
Sunday 11 November 11.20am
The Blue Souls are a group of five musicians who love and play blues, soul & jazz music.  Uniquely interpreting some of the classic tunes of the genre and also writing their own original songs, the Blue Souls deliver a performance that  is powerful but also seductively smooth.

Harmonica player Blind Boy Benny Campbell formed the band in Melbourne in 2005 by persuading long time friend, vocalist, Hammond & Piano player Kate Wilde to join the existing drum and bass line up.  Kate’s vocal ability is outstanding across the range of styles that the group play.  Kate also brings her jazz inspired piano licks & the unmistakeable sound of the Hammond organ which rounds out the Blue Souls sound perfectly.

Guitarist Jeff Evans joined the group shortly after and in addition to his cutting solo’s and driving rhythm work, he and Ben soon formed a strong songwriting partnership.  With Jeff creating the outstanding rhythms and hooks that feature in many of the group’s songs and Ben writing the thoughtfully crafted lyrics, the band has been able to assemble a great range of original tunes.

In 2013 bass player Rob ‘the chairman’ Ranogajec and Dave ‘Richo’ Richardson on the drums took over business in the engine room providing the solid driving rhythm that is the bedrock of the band.

The band loves the festival atmosphere and the Blue Souls experience is not to be missed.
