Mississauga, Ontario will play host to the 9th Annual Port Credit Blues & Jazz Festival, ‘The Southside Shuffle’, September 7 to 9. With a great lineup of international and local acts, there’s an abundance of top-drawer blues, rock, folk, and more scheduled over the three days.

Among the mainstage headline acts are 5 time Grammy award-winning guitarist Buddy Guy, the ten-piece pop-rockers Lighthouse, and Kate Hart’s vocal revue Detroit Women of Soul.

Organizers have also announced the addition of a second stage to the event, which will run simultaneous to the mainstage. The South Side Sick Kids Stage will feature such names as folk legend Valdy, blues guitarist David Gogo, and Juno award winning pianist Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne.

Kicking off the festival week is the September 5th New Orleans Gala, featuring the Maple Blues Band. Other notable events include the Beggars Banquet on September 6th, with ‘Singing For Sick Kids’ starring Johnny Max and Chuck Jackson, The Three Tenors, and the Beggars Blues Jam.
