The 28th annual Blues & Brews festival just wrapped up after 3 days of blues and rock music, gospel, yummy festival foods and this year – exceptional weather! Ceelo Green provided a spectacular James Brown tribute to close out Friday night. Rock n Roll Hall of Famer Buddy Guy was the beloved main stage closing act on Saturday night and the 86 (!) year old rocked out! Sunday provided a lovely soulful mid-morning gospel vibe, turning into rock as Samantha Fish entered the Blues & Brews stage for the 6th time in a row. Powerhouses Gov’t Mule rounded out the full festival schedule on Sunday night.
Over the years, Blues & Brews have grown to not only include world class music in the park. The festival now also features stand up comedy on the blues stage, as well as the Sunset Blues concert, Twilight sessions and of course the popular late night shows; Juke Joints. The Juke Joints are located at venues throughout town, featuring some of the most influential artists of the festival.
