JIMIWAY BLUES FESTIVAL STARTED MANY YEARS AGO
Jimiway blues festival started many years ago but origins reaches 1994. That time my son Oskar encouraged me to come back into playing the blues. Then some projects came up: “Jimiway” concerts, rhythm & blues band Fire Band and “Jimiway” association of blues and rock 70. We had 25th edition of Jimiway festiwal in 2006. The first four were organized as concerts. Festival has been held in OCK (Cultural Centre in Ostrow). The town authorities appreciate our music and help financially to make it better
FESTIVAL BEGINS WITH "WHO KNOWS" SONG
Festival is begins with “Who Knows” song by Jimi Hendrix – our spirit patron. That song became our anthem also performed by the town authorities and children choir Do-Re-Mi. Each festiwal day is finished with jam session together with the bands and all willing musicians.

Blues gave me what I lacked: love, hope for all my days
