The annual Bendigo Blues and Roots winter showcase and fundraiser will be held this Sunday across three stages at the historic Hotel Shamrock.

Solo and duo acts will serenade music fans all day long at the Yard Bird Bar and Kitchen.

Stage two will keep patrons dancing in the ornate Federation Room, and there’s even a buskers stage, exploding with spontaneous jams on the front pavement.

No less than 17 acts will put their best foot forward in support of Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival, which takes place across four jam-packed days on the second weekend of November.

The BB&RMF crew have put together an amazing program for the Winter Showcase at the Shamrock with eight hours of live music kicking off at 12pm. 

The list of artists performing across the three stages boasts some of the most impactful and engaging acts of the festival proper’s program.

It includes both local and visiting acts, such as Electric Blues Collective (Melbourne); 40 Thieves (Croydon); Orange Whip (Ararat); Slap Back Jack and The Magic 8-Balls; Nardia (Melbourne); Daniel Aaron; Jarrod Shaw (Melbourne); Sarah Wilkinson; The Flannos; Spiritus (Gembrook); Rhyley McGrath; Jade Byrd; Funk Junkies; Andy Garlick; Deus Sax; Honk Tank; and the already accomplished Bendigo South East College Stage Band featuring a large number of the city’s finest young aspiring musicians.
