Beth Hart, Gregory Porter and Robert Cray added to line-up for BluesFest 2014

Running across six days from Sunday 26th - Friday 31st October, this year’s BluesFest will present a diverse programme packed with blues legends, superstar international acts and incredible emerging talent. Having already announced a raft of big hitters including Elvis Costello, Level 42, Sheryl Crow and Van Morrison, Live Nation have confirmed that recent Grammy-winning soul sensation Gregory Porter, five-time Grammy-winning guitar legend Robert Cray and the remarkable Californian blues-rocker Beth Hart will all be performing at the festival.

Watch Beth Hart and Jeff Beck honouring Buddy Guy at the 35th Annual Kennedy Centre Honors with a stunning performance of ‘I'd Rather Go Blind’:

Hosted exclusively at the Royal Albert Hall, BluesFest 2014 will also feature performances in other rooms around the building during the daytime – full details of this activity will be released in due course.

Leo Green – Festival Director: "Several years ago I was sat having a coffee with Jeff Beck – Jeff was going on and on about a singer he had heard, he couldn’t believe how incredible her voice was and told me I had to check her out immediately – her name was Beth Hart and so I am really excited we’ve been able to book her for a show at Bluesfest on Oct 30th. Also headlining that night will be her ProVogue label mate, the incredible Robert Cray, so for blues fans, October the 30th is a date for the diary. Gregory Porter caused a real stir when he performed a double bill with Natalie Cole last year so we are delighted he is coming back to perform an entire evening of his music on October 27th."
