LITTLE ORANGE & MR. SHUFFLE (POR/PT)

Little Orange & Mr Shuffle is a common idea of Sérgio Laranjo and Jorge Oliveira. Two experienced musicians from the Blues scene in Portugal who decide to embark on a new adventure.

Little Orange & Mr Shuffle transports us to the banks of the Mississippi, where pain becomes a party, behind a wooden enclosure. The LO&MS show is a journey between the past and the present, never letting go of its own originals and the Gospel party. The basic formation is a Duo, and it can be whatever we want, if we have that desire at the moment. Blues save your Soul and Lord, give us the Light – Little Orange

WAX & BOOGIE feat IVAN SINGH (ESP/SP)

In recent years, Wax & Boogie has become one of the best in the European boogie woogie scene.

Ster Wax and David Giorcelli have managed to capture, like few others, the true spirit of the traditional music of the African-American people and transform it into their own form of expression. His knowledge of the language of black music is broad, rich and varied. Ster and David glide with serenity and balance through the most varied currents of the genre.

For Porto Blues Fest they are joined by Ivan Sigh, Argentine guitarist based in Chicago and considered the Rising Blues Sensation with his unique "LatinBlues" style developed from his lyrics of Spanglish, homemade 4-string guitar "Lata de Batata"


26 Julho - 23:00H

JUSTINA LEE BROWN (SUI/CH)

Justina Lee Brown launched her new album LOST CHILD with a live concert at Nordportal Baden, Switzerland on September 28, 2023. Justina Lee Brown (born Justina Ogunlolu) is an award-winning Nigerian Afro, Funk, Soul and Blues artist, songwriter and artist.

As a child, she struggled to survive on the streets of Lagos with her teenage mother. Music gave him the strength to overcome poverty. She rose to fame in Africa and the young pop star won the 'WOMEN IN ENTERTAINMENT AWARD' in London as 'BEST AFRICAN VOICE' in 2009.

Together with her band, Justina Lee Brown won the Swiss Blues Challenge in 2019, reached the semi-finals of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, USA, in 2020 and took second at the European Blues Challenge 2022 in Malmö, Sweden. She was nominated for the 2022 Swiss Blues Awards.

Justina won the Swiss Blues Award 2024!

THE DIXIE BOYS (POR/PT)

The Dixie Boys are characterized by a typical 50's on stage performance, both in the visuals and in the songs, with them on stage it's always a party, it's crazy for sure, always causing great emotions in the audiences that follow them, and they have a motto, if you're close, don't miss these guys, it's really worth it, Let's go party it's late! 50s Rockabilly for them is much more than music, it's a motto, it's a way of life!

27 Julho - 21:30H

DOM MARTIN (GB/UK)

Dom Martin was brought up in the often tough, but community driven streets of Belfast Northern Ireland and has certainly paid his life and musical dues.

He has made a fairly 'meteoric' rise in terms of today's industry with his jaw dropping, entirely natural sounding and unforced/unschooled skill on acoustic guitar, matched with an authentic 'Belfast Blues' voice, bringing to mind comparisons with many from (Glasgow born) John Martyn to Rory Gallagher, with nods to many in-between, not least perhaps the likes of Van Morrison and Foy Vance.

Dom has won multiple awards for his acoustic work with a 2019 European award, UK awards in 2020/2021/2022 and as a result is now an inductee in the UK Blues Hall of Fame.

“Buried in the Hail " Album of the Year – 2024 UK Blues Awards


27 Julho - 23:00H

KING SOLOMON HICKS (EUA/USA)

Solomon Hicks, aka King Solomon Hicks, the 28-year-old guitar phenom from New York.

Solomon won the 2021 Blues Music Awards for Best Emerging Artist in 2020

Release of the CD, Harlem by Provogue Records. The set, produced/recorded by multiple Grammy Award winner Kirk Yano (Miles Davis, Public Enemy, Mariah Carey), features Hicks as songwriter, guitarist and performer.

He has shared stages with Buddy Guy, Samantha Fish, Tony Bennett, Jeff Beck, Ringo Starr, Jimmie Vaughn, Beth Hart, Mavis Staples, Robert Cray, Eric Gales, Norman Nardini and many others.
