Ashleigh Mannix ... A Very Talented World Class Singer

Ashleigh Mannix at Bluesfest 2012.
While down at Bluesfest with my youngest son, wandering around waiting for  the John Fogerty show to begin, we wandered into the APRA tent at around 3 o'clock and caught a young talent by the name of Ashleigh Mannix.
She blew us both away with her singing for a whole 60 minutes.
It is always a special joy to stumble across one of the worlds great singers performing in a very small tent at Bluesfest.
This lady just oozes talent all over the stage.
I thought I was lucky on Good Friday catching  
James Vincent McMorrow singing in this tent and then lightning struck twice and I discovered Ashleigh Mannix
Bluesfest justs keeps getting better, year after year.
It is one of life's special privileges to stumble across a talent so special and spend an hour among other Bluesfest attendees who are probably thinking the same thing.
It's another one of those hour of memories that will last for life.


  1. Haven't heard of Ashleigh before. Is she Australian? It didn't say on her blog where she's from. How great to 'discover' someone unexpectedly.

  2. Yes Mike she is Australian,I think that she is from Sydney,but don't quote me on that.

  3. Signed, no less! Off to listen to her. Love your movie, books, and music recommendations!

    1. I bought the CD after the show,where she was signing them in the merchandise tent.My son also bought another CD of hers and had it signed as well.In fact I think everybody in the tent that she played in bought a CD and had it signed,by the length of the line that we had to wait in.
