Bonnie Raitt to headline 2008 Dutch Mason Blues Festival and Motorcycle Lifestyle Show.

International superstar, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer BONNIE RAITT is coming to Nova Scotia to perform Saturday night, August 9th at the 4th annual Dutch Mason Blues Festival.

World-renowned Blues legend JAMES COTTON has agreed to be the festival’s International Ambassador. Cotton will be performing on Saturday night’s concert line up with special guest and friend, guitar legend HUBERT SUMLIN. When Hubert Sumlin plays guitar he takes you to his World of Blues Feeling – from despair to ecstasy, from delicate grace to raw power, from lost to found. He was voted #65 on Rolling Stones list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists in the History of Rock and Roll. Hubert Sumlin and his band will be headlining Sunday’s tribute to Dutch Mason. Also included in Saturday nights concert line up is Multiple Blues Music Award winner, Canadian guitarist DAVID GOGO and Nova Scotia’s Juno award winning bluesman GARRETT MASON.
