Superstar Bonnie Raitt is the big crowd-puller during the first Holland International Blues Festival on 3 and 4 June 2016. Next spring, artists and aficionados will gather at the Woodstock-like festival site in Grolloo in the Dutch province of Drenthe for this two-day event entirely focussed on blues music. According to co-organiser and blues fan Johan Derksen it was about time for a festival like Holland International Blues: “This is what makes the difference between a bunch of noise and real music.”

Johan Derksen and the organisers have, in addition to Bonnie Raitt, also confirmed Beth Hart, Jools Holland, Ana Popovic, Jimmie Vaughan, JJ Grey, and Robert Randolph for the festival.

Derksen: “We wish the whole event to breathe the atmosphere of Woodstock. But then, of course, with better facilities. The festival site of Grolloo proves to be the ideal location for that. For me, blues music is pure enjoyment. In a fitting surroundings with like-minded souls. And naturally, I am hoping that all kinds of fun and spontaneous actions occur, Jools Holland for example loves jamming and improvising and the blues is perfect for that.”

For the fans of Bonnie Raitt, the festival offers a unique opportunity to see this 10-time Grammy winner perform live. The singer will not give any other performances in our country and will be on stage on the second day of the festival.

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
