Van Morrison And Elvis Costello Lead BluesFest Lineup

Van Morrison and Elvis Costello have been added to the list of headliners for this year's BluesFest.

Morrison and Costello join a string of headline acts showcasing their blues roots, including Sheryl Crow and Georgie Fame. Costello noted: "I've waited a long, long time to share a bill with Georgie Fame. There is no better address to do it than Albert's Royal Hall. Fame at last!"

The fourth annual BluesFest festival will be held at London's Royal Albert Hall from Sunday, October 26 to Friday, October 31. The festival, which features international stars from the worlds of blues, soul, jazz and R&B, also features daytime events including intimate sessions, exhibitions, showcases, and an "In Conversation With" series.

Last year's lineup included Robert Plant, Ronnie Wood, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mavis Saples, and Chris Rea, among others.
