As Roman Puchowski puts it - The Rawa Blues Festival helped him making music his profession. The singer, composer and guitar virtuoso will be the next one to join the Polish artists playing at the anniversary edition of Rawa.
He started his career with the Festival in Katowice. In autumn he will remind us that he is still down with the blues and looks for no medicine to treat beat the condition. Sławek Wierzcholski - one of the most important figures on the Polish blues scene - along with his band Nocna Zmiana Bluesa (The Blues Night Shift) he comes back after a long break. Good to have you back Sławek!
According to Rolling Stone he’s “a young, powerhouse guitarist and soulful vocalist". It is by no means an isolated opinion. Selwyn Birchwood, another "young wolf" of the American blues scene will be one of the stars of this year’s Rawa Blues Festival.
The excellent American singer Bettye Lavette is the first officially announced star of this year's Rawa Blues Festival. The 35th Edition of one of the most prestigious blues events in the world will take place on October 3rd in Katowice, Poland.
