American musician Delicate Steve performed on the City Stage at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017 on July 15th. Decked out in a stunning blue blazer and pants. Got things going with his blend of folk, psych-rock and surf rock guitar music.
This was my first time seeing Dead Obies at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017. They are an experimental hip hop band originating from South Shore, Quebec. Seeing all 6 members on the Blacksheep Inn stage is quite something to see.
Ottawa’s Blakdenim played at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017. Performing on the Claridge Homes Stage with their blend of hip-hop, funk, rock and soul. Got the audience moving and shaking in the nice hot weather!

Kicking off Day 9 of RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017 was the alternative rock band PINE. The Ottawa band performed on the City stage and played materials from their EP Pillowtalk.
Ending Day 8 of RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017 was the American rock band LIVE. Let’s say LIVE was cut short after playing about 3 songs due to the heavy downpour of the rain. Luckily I got some photos from their set. Sadly my camera is on the fritz!
2017 Polaris Music Prize short-listers A Tribe Called Red performed on the Bluesville stage at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017. There was a delay with their due to thunder/lightning that was going to hit the area. It was a great short set and they had to shut it down due to the heavy down pour.
Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals was one of the big highlights on Day 8 of RBC Ottawa Bluesfest 2017. Wasn’t as crazy as the night before. Anderson had a lot of stage presence and the music was great to listen and dance around.
