Sighișoara Blues Festival is the first prestigious event of it’s kind in Romania that is bringing exceptional international artists to the country in order to promote Blues Music to a public that is growing more and more every year.

History of the Festival

The Festival started in 2005 and is being organised by the Sighișoara Blues Cultural Association, with the support of Sighișoara Town Hall, each year in the last week-end of March. During the Festival, other than the two main concerts that take place every evening at Mihai Eminescu Hall in Sighișoara, with a capacity of 500 seats and great acoustics, there is a daily workshop offered by the artists, open air concerts in the Medieval Citadel of Sighișoara and monumental jam sessions.

International Artists

Exceptional international artists have performed at Sighișoara Blues Festival throughout the years, such as Corey Harris, Sugar  Blue, Johnny Winter or Bob Brozman. Also, The Jimmys (multiple Grammy nominees) have recently released an album with songs recorded live during the 2015 edition of the Festival, while the legendary bluesman Johnny Winter has celebrated his Birthday right on the Festival’s stage in 2012. We could evoke many more historical episodes such as these, but there is not enough time for it right now…
