Memphis Tourism Announces Exclusive Blues Trade Events

May 2, 2019 Events / Whats On No Comments Email Email

Memphis Tourism is excited to announce that Grammy Award nominee and renowned Memphis and Mississippi bluesman, Cedric Burnside will be appearing at two exclusive trade events across Melbourne and Sydney next month.  

Travelling to Australia to perform at the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival on the Gold Coast in May, Cedric will perform for two intimate shows ahead of the main event where he will showcase his electric and acoustic guitar prowess, joined by his full band. Those in attendance will have the opportunity experience what Memphis is famous for and meet with the legendary blues artist himself.

As the grandson of legendary R.L Burnside, a famous American blues singer and guitarist who found fame in his grey years, Cedric Burnside draws upon a tradition that is decades old and cuts deeper than any other artist’s recent attempt to interpret the blues.

The exclusive VIP events will be followed by public performances across Melbourne and Sydney, as well as three days of public performances at Blues on Broadbeach. Details below –

  • Spotted Mallard, Melbourne – Monday 13th May 2019
  • The Lansdowne Hotel, Sydney – Thursday 16th May 2019
  • Blues on Broadbeach, Gold Coast – Friday 17th to Sunday 19th May 2019

Exclusive to travel agents only, both events will be limited in numbers and are the perfect opportunity to get a taste of what Memphis is best known for – iconic blues music. To pre-register your interest in attending the Melbourne and Sydney events, contact Chris Ingram at
