What a great way to close out 10 jam packed days of this year’s edition of Ottawa Bluesfest. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers put together a fantastic two hour long set and had the crowd signing along to almost every single one of the songs. It’s been a long wait to see them in Ottawa, but they certainly made up for it last night.
Earlier in the day I saw a great set by Ottawa’s Souljazz Orchestra. I loved seeing them last year and I have to say the same with their Bluesfest show this year. Their fusion of latin jazz, afrobeat and funk made for a great counterpoint to all the Blues and Rock I’ve seen over the past two weeks.
I now have a couple of days to rest up before I attend Kemptville Live Music Festival this coming Thursday and Saturday.
