Larry Garner

Vienna Blues Spring Festival

There’s classic Delta and Chicago blues, rock, soul and electric blues, as well as boogie, interpreted by international stars and the best of the Viennese scene. Most of the concerts are held at the Reigen.

Woodstock legends and newcomers

A noticeably large number of up-and-coming blues artists can be heard this year because a young generation is bringing a breath of fresh air to the scene in the USA and England. Artists include the phenomenal singer Sari Schorr from the USA – she really does have to be seen and heard – and King King, who have really taken off (best British blues band three times in a row). The appearance by US guitar genius Eric Steckel is certainly a special experience. The local scene is represented, amongst others, by Kutscher's Blues Band and Herby & The Mudcats with Lilli Kern.

A number of established stars raise the average age at Vienna Blues Spring: such as Woodstock legend Miller Anderson, the English rock musician Don Airey (who, amongst other things, played keyboard for the hard rock group Deep Purple) and the British rock and blues band Mungo Jerry ("In the Summertime", "Lady Rose").

Other concert highlights at the Reigen:

  • JP Soars – the US blues star performs with band
  • Kai Strauss – native German; an aficionado on the six blues strings
  • Rob Tognoni – Australian blues guitarist
  • Larry Garner – US representative of Louisiana blues (photo)
  • Hermann Posch – poster child of the local scene
  • Raphael Wressnig – the Austrian is a genius on the Hammond organ

At the Radio Kulturhaus, Martin Pyrker and Joachim Palden play blues and boogie in grand style, accompanied by Martin Winning and Tom Müller on the saxophones and singer Dana Gillespie. The Mojo Blues Band celebrates its 40th anniversary on Palm Sunday at Theater Akzent. The blues feeling is also created in the midst of springtime in Vienna at Mozarthaus Vienna and at the House of Music.
