US music legend Zac Brown will perform at Bluesfest 2017 with his Zac Brown Band, but now Bluesfest organisers have revealed that his other band Sir Rosevelt will also take to the stage at the annual festival.
Conceived in 2015, the group is made up of Brown, Niko Moon and Ben Simonetti, and they’ll be making their Aussie debut as Sir Rosevelt at Bluesfest next year.
Sir Rosevelt’s debut self-titled album is set to be released in early January, so they’ll have a slew of brand new songs for your waiting Bluesfest ears.
As a result of the addition of Sir Rosevelt, Zac Brown fans will now get to see Brown perform three times over the festival — twice with the Zac Brown Band and once with Sir Rosevelt.
Check out the 2017 Bluesfest lineup in full, below.
UPDATE 02/12/16: Neil Young has cancelled his appearance at Bluesfest 2017.
