Holland International Blues Festival 2017

Hoofdstraat 11, 9444 PA Grolloo, Drenthe, the Netherlands

Website:

When the first blues bands started to perform in the 1950's, it was not loved by everybody on this planet. In the southern states of America, many people described it even as “devil’s music”.

In early 1960's in Great-Brittan many rock 'n roll bands got inspired by the blues. They started in underground scenes, but many of them soon after became known worldwide.

In the Netherlands rock 'n roll became popular because of airplay on pirate radio stations like Caroline, Veronica and Radio Noordzee.

The legendary band Cuby & the Blizzards comes from Grolloo, a small village with 800 citizens in the province Drenthe. There they opened a museum, which is dedicated to lead singer Harry “Cuby” Muskee and his Blizzards. It is located in the farm where the band was formed in 1964, where the band rehearsed and where Harry lived.

On June the 9th and June the 10th, the second edition of Holland International Blues Festival will take place in Grollo, their stage filled with established blues musicians, as well as new blues talents.
