DEEP SOUTH ROOTS, BLUES & FOLK FESTIVAL
RETURNING FOR IT'S FOURTH YEAR - NOV 19-22
In what is becoming a welcome tradition, Deep South - Blues, Roots and Folk - Festival is set to take over Adelaide iconic hotel The Gov for two days and four nights at the end of November.
Headed by Australian blues guitar genius Ray Beadle, who will treat festival goers to two different performances over the weekend, the festival hosts The Backsliders fresh from a tour of the East Coast and the exclusive reformation of Adelaide soul/blues legends Double Whammy. Once again, Deep South Festival delivers a stellar line up of local and interstate performers.
For the fourth year running, The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel entirely transforms into a fully-fledged festival with music stages throughout for Saturday and Sunday.
Three sister events are tagged for the Thursday and Friday including the charismatic, cheeky and oh-so-talented Fiona Boyes releasing her new album on the Thursday evening as a limited seated “exclusive performance” precluded by an art exhibition from local artists who are also musicians.
Friday Nov 20 hosts the return of the sell-out hit Women Sing The Blues with Ursula White, Jan Preston’s Boogie Circus (NZ) and Zkye.
This year, the focus is not just on the music stars. South Australian food and wine is getting a headlining position, owner of The Gov, Melissa Tonkin explains:
“Our new chef has been working with local South Australian producers to create a delicious menu for the event. We’ll have locally-sourced platters, wines and of course our famous wood-oven pizzas on offer.”
Festival goers can buy a weekend pass for the Saturday and Sunday at a discounted rate or purchase tickets separately for each day, including the bonus events on Thursday and Friday evenings.
