Blues on the Bay is coming of age in style with some of the world’s leading blues and jazz performers heading to Warrenpoint for the 21st International Guinness® Blues on the Bay Festival from 22-27 May 2019.

Sponsored by Diageo, the festival attracts thousands of music loving locals and tourists with many coming from across the globe to visit the renowned festival.

Commenting on the 2019 programme, Event Director, Ian Sands added; “There is definitely something for everyone at the International Guinness® ‘Blues on the Bay Festival, as we combine top-class international jazz and blues performers along-side Warrenpoint’s renowned restaurants and friendly hospitality hosts.  Tourists coming to the event will be truly spoiled for choice, quality and top-notch blues music.”

Celebrating its 21st anniversary, the International Guinness® Blues on the Bay Festival hosts six days of 100 free breath-taking blues and jazz gigs, music workshops and jamming sessions.  Featuring amazing international blues musicians from across the globe and closer to home, this award-winning festival grows from strength to strength.

This year festival fans will be treated to a musical extravaganza featuring international blues legends including Argentinian singer, guitar and trumpet player, Vanesa Harbek, and Chicago’s guitar blazer, Big Dog Mercer.

Other highlights include showcases for emerging musicians on the Bluesberry Fringe and a wealth of established pros in the international blues festival circuit – Pat McManus, Rab McCullough, Ronnie Greer, Mirenda Rosenberg, The Unholy Gospel Band, Freedom 35’s, Rev Doc, Ralph McLean, Green Tangerines and The Bluez Katz Blues Band.

Paul Callan, Diageo Northern Ireland, said; “The International Guinness® Blues on the Bay Festival is an annual highlight for thousands of visitors from across Ireland and overseas. Guinness has been supporting the festival for the last 21 years and it is a great fit for our brand with talent, passion and fun always on show.  At Diageo we are committed to playing our part in helping to expand Northern Ireland’s tourism and hospitality offering and The International Guinness® Blues on the Bay Festival plays a key role in doing exactly that.  We take great delight in seeing how the festival continues to evolve and special thanks must go to the bars, restaurants and hotels in Warrenpoint and the surrounding area for their help and continued support of Diageo and this event.”

The festival organiser’s have always stuck to the principal of it being a ‘musicians festival’ and it is the music that has always been its key to success. Similarly, as the event is a not-for-profit, voluntary project, costs to festival goers has always been great value-for-money.

Over the years, artists like Van Morrison, Peter Green, Paul Jones and Dr Feelgood have appeared in small intimate venues.

Many of the headliners have came back several times, simply because of the warm and friendly atmosphere during festival weekend.

There is something for everyone at the Warrenpoint ‘Blues on the Bay’ festival and because there is plenty of great restaurants and bars hosting fantastic top class international blues performers; tourists coming to the event will be truly spoiled for choice and quality!

The 21st International Guinness Blues on the Bay Festival is supported by Diageo Northern Ireland; Newry, Mourne and Down District Council; The Quays Newry; WBR Chamber of Commerce; Scenic Carlingford Ferry and Tourism NI.
