Rocking the stage

Tom Cochrane and Red Rider rocked the stage during the opening night of the Thunder Bay Blues Festival last year.

As Mr. Jagger famously observed in song, you can’t always get what you want. But sometimes, even if you try, getting what you need can also be in short supply.

Organizers of Thunder Bay’s annual Bluesfest announced Thursday they’ve been forced to cancel the 2020 event due to a lack of head-lining acts able to commit to coming to the Lakehead this summer.

It’s the first time the outdoor waterfront show has had to be called off since it kicked off in 2001.
