Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival welcomes Ray Beadle back for his first performance at the festival since 2017.
Ray’s guitar and vocal styles evoke numerous blues legends, whilst concocting a breathtaking style of his own. It is not by chance that Ray has become a favourite amongst Australian blues fans.
An exhilarating guitarist, an enthralling singer-songwriter, and an extremely talented performer, Ray was awarded ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Song’, and ‘Best Male Artist’ in the Australian Blues Music ‘Chain’ Awards.
Ray Beadle is the genuine article; his music comes deep from the heart and soul, stirring emotions in people with his guitar genius. Ray’s music is rich with a deep history of the blues, garnered from 20 years of experience performing nationally and internationally, as well as a deep understanding of how to use his instrument to stir something within the listener.
Ray’s life as a musician started when he was just nine, and for the next 20 years, Ray has played with and learnt from the best, including many years spent performing and recording with the Foreday Riders (commonly referred to as the ‘University of the Blues’). Ray has shared the stage with many great Australian and international artists and has thrilled countless festival audiences. A three-month residency with the house band in BB King’s Club in Memphis, as well as several Southern blues festivals, were all defining moments during Ray’s three tours to the USA.
