If anyone knows how to get a party started, it’s without a doubt Canada’s very own Great Big Sea!

There was definitely a lot of foot stomping and hand clapping and this show! What a fun performance!
If any band knows how to put on a show and start a party, it’s without a doubt Down With Webster. They performed one of the most energetic and intense sets of Bluesfest 2012, and the crowd was just as wild. A great time was had by all during their performance that’s for sure!
