Seems like every other island in the Caribbean is hosting a music festival of some sort, and now Nevis has joined the fun with its inaugural blues festival set for April 16-19 at the aptly named Sundowner Stage on Oualie Bay. The line-up features an impressive selection of artists from Europe, the United States and the Caribbean, including British Blues Hall of Famer Ian Siegal, XM Satellite Radio’s “Best New Blues Artist” Zac Harmon and U.K.-based jazz, gospel and blues singer Denise Gordon, whose parents are from Nevis.
