Le Cahors Blues Festival 2023 will be held from July 12 to 15 inclusive!
Le Cahors Blues Festival created in 1982, is the oldest Blues festival in France. Its founder Gérard Tertre who was President of the Hot Club of Cahors died in 2003.
Known throughout Europe, this festival takes place every year in July and attracts several thousand people to each of its evening concerts. He has revealed many little-known or unknown artists to the public as well as produced some of the most famous Blues artists. Remaining faithful to the Blues, he has put forward many artists from the Delta Blues and all Blues music in general.
In 2006 Robert Mauriès joined the Festival and perpetuated Gérard Tertre's original vision. He became President succeeding Jean-Pierre Lemozit, with whom he worked closely for a few years and who also died. Now tens of thousands of spectators flock to the festival site to enjoy the free afternoon concerts, the evening concerts on the main stage and the "blues in the city" evening where the bands perform at the terraces of cafes and brasseries in the city of Cahors.
A popular family and festive atmosphere that gives Cahors a real blues atmosphere of the cities of the Mississippi Delta.
Every day from July 12, 2023, two free concerts will take place at 17 p.m. and 18:30 p.m. in the blues village on Place Charles de Gaulle in Cahors.
