2014 Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival Artist Lineup
Saturday, Feb. 15

Robert Cray Band – We are pleased to welcome back to Coachman Park this five-time Grammy Award Winner whose music on This Time remains stubbornly beyond category. He has been internationally admired as a stylist whose innovations have brought new life to the blues. His new album’s barrier-busting material demonstrates once again that attempting to slot Cray into a single genre is an exercise in futility.
Vintage Trouble - A sensational, soulful four-man band whose very essence screams out loud of the late 1950′s to 1960′s. Vintage Trouble’s album, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, recently won them Ryan Seacrest’s Indie “Song of Summer.” Their second album comes out in spring 2014.
Peter Karp & Sue Foley - Supporting their exciting CD, Beyond The Crossroads, Peter and Sue are high voltage, plank spankin,’ piano boogying,’ slide guitar stompin,’ blues-rockin’ guitarists. He Said- She Said, their previous album, hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Blues Charts and was #1 for 6 weeks on the National Blues and Roots Charts.
Marquise Knox - At only 19 he has already released three albums with the release of Manchild which has received worldwide acclaim, including Living Blues’ Best Debut Artist Award and a Blues Music Award nomination for Best Debut Artist.
