Delta blues to strike chord at Delamere

Three resonator guitarists will bring a Delta blues flavour to Pipers Brook when performing at the inaugural Delamere Music Fest.

Tasmanians Jacob Boote and Laura Mead with Victorian special guest Skip Sail will bring Delta blues, glissando slide playing and swing, jazz, hillbilly and Hawaiian to the festival.

Delamere Vineyards said they would be a “fantastic complement” to the roots, blues and folk tunes of Kelly Menhennett and Halfway to Forth at the event.

Boote and Mead have performed music together for six years and form a partnership on and off the stage, playing in an eclectic style.

Delamere Music Fest starts at noon on Saturday October 15 and finishes 5pm.

Tickets are limited and selling fast, at $25 per person.

Transport from Launceston is available at $15 per person, leaving at 11.15am from the Officeworks car park and departing Delamere at 5pm to return to Launceston by 5.45pm.
