These diverse artists were handpicked to join the festival and create a blend of styles all rooted in the blues – a genre that embodies our deepest emotions, passions, loves and fears. Each artist in this genre feels a profound responsibility to preserve this great music tradition, which is in line with the festival’s ultimate purpose of keeping the blues alive for the next generation.
To further this mission, the festival has created a special stage for its Keeping The Blues Alive Ignite ARTISTS (artists indicated with an asterisk (*)). The tradition of blues music is just over a century old, and with each generation, young new prophets of the blues step forward. It is the mission of presenting partner Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation to foster the newest wave of talent who will carry the torch for the next generation of blues enthusiasts. These cutting edge “Ignite ARTISTS” are the innovative trailblazers that will preserve the great blues traditions while interpreting them in exciting, new directions.
Alongside stellar music, the Norwegian Pearl will travel to Cozumel, Mexico, which offers a plethora of activities for travelers of all walks. Guests can stroll along tropical beaches, explore local cuisine, shop for one-of-a-kind souvenirs, or choose from a host of exciting excursions offered onboard.
