Lucerne Blues Festival – 2011

In early November of 2011, Bob Corritore returned to Switzerland to appear at the Lucerne Blues Festival, bringing a hard-hitting blues entourage of Tail Dragger, Henry Gray, and the Rhythm Room All-Stars. Bob also appeared at the Festival with the Delta Groove Harp Blast with harmonica champs Randy Chortkoff, Big Pete and Mitch Kashmar. This amazing festival is filled with love for the blues. This photo page highlights a few of the joyous times.
