Walter Trout at Ribs & Blues birthday party!

The line up for the Pentecost days is largely complete. Established names and surprising talented roots and blues acts are on the bill as usual.
Of course, WALTER TROUT cannot be missed at the anniversary edition of Ribs & Blues. He is respected by the old guard and adored by the new generation.
Trout 'the Survivor' has already played memorable performances in Raalte.
On the first day of Pentecost, the American blues giant will close the Mainstage.
With the significant name THE ANNIVERSARY BAND, a selection of top musicians from the Salland region pays tribute to all the beauty of 25 years of Ribs & Blues.
Memories of legendary performances pass by, supported by images from the rich archive. From Cuby, Alvin Lee and The Red Devils to Canned Heat, Status Quo and even The Beach Boys. A unique 'trip down Memory Lane, Happy birthday Ribs & Blues!'

The 25th edition of Ribs & Blues kicks off on the evening of Saturday, May 27 with THE ANALOGUES show featuring fantastic live performances of complex Beatles songs.
ILSE DELANGE needs no introduction. The singer from Twente has an international career, many hits and an excellent live reputation and plays a bit of a 'home game' in Raalte.
