It was a big night on July 14th at Ottawa Bluesfest.
I didn’t see Santana since there was this great Montreal band which (you would be shocked) was my tenth time seeing.
It was a worthwhile night.
The acts I saw were:
- The Rural Alberta Advantage
- Steve Winwood
- That 1 Guy
- Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes
- Plants and Animals
Here are the photos.

First saw The Rural Alberta Advantage at the Hard Rock stage.
They were amazing live as always.
I was happy to hear The Ballad Of The RAA, Rush Apart and my favorite Don’t Haunt This Place.
They always have a great reception when they play in Ottawa.
Gotta love Paul Banwatt play those drums.
Went to see abit of Steve Winwood.
Very surprised with the over ready crowdedness on Claridge and MBNA stage.
I was there for the first two songs and he mostly played on the piano.
Headed over to the Subway Stage and see That 1 Guy.
He seems to be a staple for Bluesfest and always get a warm welcome when he is in Ottawa.
For those that don’t know, he is a musician that plays through a “magic pipe” which makes interesting sounds.
Sad that he won’t be playing the Ottawa Folk Festival.
Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes was interesting.
Great sound from the Hard Rock stage.
For those wanting the blues, it was the one that night.
Plants and Animals, who I’ve seen numerous times.
Put on an awesome show.
Mostly sang materials from La La Land.
But didn’t disappoint when singing materials from Parc Avenue.
The only song they don’t sing anymore is “Lola Who”.
Overall it was an amazing show despite playing against Santana.
