In 2014, Patrick Elliget, a Peninsula local and Blues lover, created the Mornington Peninsula Blues Sessions - a series of live boutique Blues events showcasing some of this country's leading exponents of the Blues in an intimate theatre-like environment of the Peninsula Community Theatre in Mornington.
Over the last 4 years, twice yearly, the sold out sessions have been graced by some of Australia's finest Blues musicians including Phil Manning, Matt Taylor, Geoff Achison, Chris Finnen, Lloyd Spiegel, Jimi Hocking, Fiona Boyes and Chris Wilson, to name just a few.
After much critical acclaim and establishing a loyal following 'The Sessions' will continue in mid 2020, however Patrick has always had a dream to create a major Blues festival on the Peninsula, so more people can experience and enjoy world class Blues music.
The first Mornington Peninsula Blues Festival on Febuary 9 this year was stunning success and featured some of Australia's finest Rock and Blues music artists in a celebration of live music and everything the fabulous Mornington Peninsula has to offer.
Be a part of the second year of the festival on February 8 that continues take live Blues to a whole new level on the Peninsula.
