Schilling City. The organizers of the “Blues & More” festival, Werner Glösl and Norbert Postmann, were happy to welcome around 1,400 visitors to the wonderful atmosphere of the castle square this year.
At the blues festival, which has been taking place since 2013, blues legends such as Hans Thiessink, Mojo Blues band, Dana Gillespie, Bluesbombam, Harry Stoica and Peter Ratzenbeck have already performed. Regional blues bands are also part of the festival every year – Dana Gillespie, Big Daddy Wilson or “Viennese Ladies” were among the absolute stars of the Borgarina blues evenings on July 29-30.
The Viennese ladies have built a reputation on the Austrian living scene over the past five years, with their shows full of liveliness and energy – audiences in Schlining have been able to see for themselves.
Gillespie and Big Daddy Wilson
