Five instead of the planned six American performers will perform during the 34th edition of the Festival. Cassie Taylor's management informed us that the singer cannot participate in the concert due to health problems. "Of course it's also sad news for us. Cassie had been looking forward to the concert" - wrote Chuck Haren, Cassie's road manager. The following American stars will be playing the blues at this year's Rawa Blues Festival in Katowice: Blind Boys of Alabama, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Eric Bibb, The Fox Street All Stars and Shawn Holt & The Teardrops.
