Goulburn Blues Festival 2022 took place over three days and nights on a weekend at the end of November. Here is a selection of images, and links at the bottom to more.
Click on any image to see it larger (if on a PC at least). With many it makes a big difference.
This is a free festival and I had not organised in advance to cover it. I had intended to photograph just some of the non-Canberra bands I was less familiar with but I ended up effectively covering the festival. However, although I photographed thirty-two performances, I missed some of the earlier acts including Guitar Case Troubadors, The Honey Sippeers, Matt Ross and Johnny Reynolds Band. This post presents a selection of images, I have not tried to include each performance. However, as it happens the only ones without an image here are Catfish Soup, Key Grip, Piano Wizard, Lying Cheating Bastards (though the boy under the table was during Key Grip).

The Other Blues Festivals page in this Blog includes an overall link for Goulburn 2022 as well as links for each performance, top 100 images, top 30 images and selected monochromes. (That page also has links for thirteen previous festivals, including five previous Goulburns. There are also other pages for Thredbo, Sydney and Narooma Blues Festivals.)
The festival was six weeks ago but I have just finished processing, albeit not on a fulltime basis. I took 3,000 images and produced 360 colour images in individual band portfolios, and also 30 monochrome conversions. I used Lightroom to organise and select images, including preliminary processing, and processed images in Capture One.
(There are over 10,000 images linked to on this Blog for Live Music Festivals (mainly Blues Festivals) and 13,500 for all live music (I still have to add links for about 750 images from last year which I shall do soon). For images of a particular band I may have taken since 2006, see the Musicians and Bands Page .)
