King, Muddy Waters, Big Mama Thornton, the list goes on…). This year, the spirit of the festival lives on in a 2-day event showcasing a new generation of artists, alongside blues veterans. The lineup includes Shemekia Copeland, John Sinclair with special guest Don Was, and Ana Popovic, among others. In addition to the music, expect to enjoy a wide variety of food vendors and beer on site. Free for kids ages 12 and under.
