Blues, soul, rhythm and blues, swing, tango, jazz, rock and roll, latin, are the styles of this talented Argentinian singer, guitar and trumpet player with a degree in Music, Teaching and Composition at UCA -Argentine Catholic University.

She has a versatile and powerful voice and moves comfortably in different musical styles. She has a natural talent with the guitar. Her exquisite technique and solid sound, make a perfect combination for her virtuosity and quality as a performer.

Since June 2017 Vanessa is living in Berlin, Germany.

Blues Festival Warrenpoint 2019

Community Safety notice from the organisers:

Blues on the Bay 2019 is nearly here!

We hope to confirm the festival line-up in the next few days regarding our fantastic 21st Year, taking place between 22nd to 27th May 2019.

In advance of announcements in the next few days, we would advise the overall importance of making it a safe and family friendly weekend for everyone.

We do hope to once again to have events suitable for families, however;

We must remind visitors that the consumption of alcohol in any public place e.g. Streets, Parks, Beaches, Roads is strictly prohibited and illegal.

There are no events in the festival whereby alcohol carryouts are allowed, facilitated or welcome.

All our events are held in venues where licensed premises legislation is in force. (We also have family events in approved areas that do not serve alcohol).

Additional multi-agency measures are in place this year to manage those who may consider spoiling the festival for visitors and music fans.

We would ask parents to be particularly supportive of our request to ensure their children are always supervised, do not get access to alcohol and also return back home safely at the appropriate time.

The consideration of the organisation of private hire buses to come to Warrenpoint where alcohol is being transported or consumed is really unwanted and could result in the appropriate actions taken by the authorities against operator and persons arranging to hire. This also applies to pick-up/set-down areas.

The organisers would also request the Off-Sales/Off-Licenses not to engage in special promotions of strong alcohol or glass products.

We have had over 20 years of great music and friendships and we appeal to all who can, to help us keep our annual festival going by keeping it a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

We are particularly mindful of the residents of Warrenpoint and ask that visitors keep the town tidy and peaceful over the festival weekend.

Thank you for your kind consideration.
