The 29th Annual Chicago Blues Festival is now over. It was a wonderful weekend of music by artists we know well and some we don’t have a chance to see often. Our Blues Breakers Blues Fest Broadcast was one of the best ever. Now it’s time to move on and we’ll be looking forward to another big weekend of blues in Chicagoland this coming weekend tonight on Blues Breakers. Our Artist of the Week will be Howlin’ Wolf.
This coming Saturday there will be another blues festival. Blues on the Fox takes place Friday evening but mostly Saturday in downtown Aurora along the banks of the Fox River. We’ll play a couple of songs from artists who were part of our Blues Breakers Blues Fest Broadcast this past Thursday who will be playing this Saturday at Blues on the Fox. We’ve also got some new releases to try to fit in tonight from Joe Louis Walker and Lil’ Ed and others. Join us at nine (central) tonight.
