A lovely tribute to the King of the Blues, B.B. King
The 1st Annual Strasburg Blues Festival will kick off at Noon on Saturday, June 6th (gates open at 10 AM) at the Strasburg Moose grounds. There will be SEVEN great bands playing for your delectation, including local favorites and legends Concrete Blues and The Hard Swimmin' Fish. From the DC-Baltimore-Delaware corridor is WAMMIE Award winner and IBC finalist Michael Tash with his incredible Bad Influence Band. JUMPIN' JUPITER WAMMIE nominee and Virginia's premiere rockabilly outfit. The Holy Goats , the best thing to come out of Jersey since Springsteen. And what would a blues festival be without the inclusion of a blues player with a national cult. That's right, we've brought back Clarence "The Blues Man" Turner , a man so right, so down with the blues, that you'll come way from his performance thinking you've heard da blooze for the first time. And last, and certainly not least, is our brilliant headliner, Albert Castiglia Band , one of the greatest blues guitarists alive.
