Sari Schorr, Vienna Blues Spring

Sixteenth Vienna Blues Spring

The event has been cancelled.

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. This is how the blues feeling is created in the midst of springtime in Vienna.

Concert series

Most of the concerts are held at the music venue the "Reigen", the center of the festival. Cliff Stevens opens the festival on March 20. Then it continues evening after evening with top acts. In the line-up: Sean Chambers, Russ Ballard and the American blues diva Sari Schorr. A guest star at the Reigen is the British Woodstock legend Miller Anderson, with band and Lee Mayall on the saxophone. Bernhard Allison, another global star, is at the Vienna Blues Spring.

In spring, the blues can be heard at other performances venues in Vienna:

  • The Mojo Blues Band makes a guest appearance at Theater Akzent (as every year on Palm Sunday)
  • At the Mozarthaus Vienna, it's "Blues unplugged" with boogie legend Martin Pyrker and Bonaventura Amann. The Austrian pianist Michael Pewny performs with ex-Rounder Girl Kim Cooper from New York.
  • The House of Music simply announces a surprise ...
