Jimmy “Bluesman” Lawson & The Cathouse Radio (USA/EST)

Jimmie Bluesman Lawson’i teavad kõik, kes Augustibluusi festivali eelmisel kümnendil külastanud on. Jimmie astus üles pea igal aastal, pakkudes publikule õhtute meeldejäävamaid hetki energilise bändijuhtimise, publiku ergutamise ja väsimatu laulmisega. Härra Bluesman on alati kohal värske repertuaariga, kutsudes pidevalt oma taustabändi värvikaid ja väärikaid kohalikke pillimehi. Pärast 9-aastast pausi Augustibluusilt on tänavusel festivalil Jimmie taustajõuks kodumaine Cathouse Radio. Tegemist on Tartu bluusibändiga, kus mängivad Alar Kriisa suupillil, Vilho Meier kitarril, Madis Fuchs basskitarril ning Kalle Kindel trummidel. Vilho ja Alariga on Jimmie koostööd teinud varemgi. Vilho liitus Jimmie bändi ridadega juba 2004. aastal. Taaskohtumine tõotab tulla eriline!
