Bluesfest 2023 Day 4

Bluesfest 2023 Day 4 was an unforgettable evening filled with incredible performances that left the crowd in awe. With headliners gracing both stages simultaneously, attendees faced the delightful challenge of choosing between two amazing shows. Surprisingly, both stages drew massive crowds, making it a night to remember.

The River Stage

At the River Stage, Youngtree and the Blooms kicked things off with their high-energy performance. Their unique blend of instruments, including violin and harmonica, captivated the audience from the start. A little kid in the crowd couldn’t contain their excitement, constantly expressing admiration for the band. Youngtree and the Blooms had a great sound, creating a fun and enjoyable atmosphere for all.

Next up was the incredibly talented Jack Barksdale, a young guitar prodigy hailing from Texas. Despite his age, Jack showcased remarkable mastery of the guitar. It was evident that he was slightly overwhelmed by the size of the stage, but he still had a blast and put on a guitar clinic that left a lasting impression. Witnessing Jack’s performance was a delightful surprise, turning many into instant fans of his exceptional guitar playing.

The main event of the night, and a personal favorite, was the legendary Alan Doyle. Racing between stages to capture all the action, Alan’s performance was the highlight of the evening. He played all the fan favorites, filling the front of the stage with a shoulder-to-shoulder standing-room-only crowd. The atmosphere was electric as everyone sang along to every lyric. A special moment occurred when Ottawa legend “Super Kyle” made a memorable appearance, being lifted over the small barricade in his wheelchair. Alan Doyle’s performance was a testament to his status as an Ottawa icon, creating memories that will be cherished by all who witnessed it.

The RBC Stage

Over at the RBC Stage, Bran Van 3000 took the big stage by storm. Known for their chart-topping hits like “Astounded,” the band delivered a lively and engaging performance. Interacting with the crowd and utilizing every inch of the stage, they put on a truly enjoyable show. This performance renewed fandom and reminded everyone of their musical prowess.

Tegan and Sara graced the stage next, bringing their unique sound and undeniable talent to Bluesfest. Although there were minor technical issues at the start, they quickly overcame them and delivered a standout performance. Switching between guitar and other instruments, the duo showcased their versatility. Their excellent lighting setup and engaging banter with the crowd made their show one of the standout performances of the night.

The main event on the big stage was Death Cab for Cutie, a band that has stood the test of time. Despite being unfamiliar with their songs, it was a new and exciting experience for many. Although rain added a touch of unpredictability, it didn’t dampen the band’s spirit or the crowd’s enthusiasm. The stage setup was impressive, although it posed some challenges for photographers due to the dim lighting.
