The Roots and Blues Hour
WOMADelaide 2015
Featuring Charlie Musselwhite
The life of harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite reads like a classic blues song: born in Mississippi, raised in Memphis and schooled on the South Side of Chicago. His craggy vocals, howling harmonica and deep country blues guitar permeate autobiographical songs revealing tough times, and forming a window into the deep well of his Mississippi soul.

WOMAD is the World of Music, Arts & Dance, founded by the musician Peter Gabriel in 1982, and WOMADelaide, the Australian WOMAD festival, kicked off in 1992.

Over the past 21 years it has become one of the nation’s favourite outdoor festivals, not only because of the unique and extraordinary music it presents, but also because of its beautiful and friendly vibe. Families are welcome (kids 12 and under get free entry) and the diversity of the audience is almost as astounding as the line-up.

WOMADelaide runs over four days in Botanic Park in inner-city Adelaide. The program features performances and workshops on seven stages by the world's best traditional and contemporary musicians, dancers and DJs, a KidZone activity area, street theatre and visual artists, the Taste the World cooking program, The Planet Talks environmental discussions program, The Electrolounge, Artists in Conversation and around 100 amazing food, retail and charity stalls.
