I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Chicago Blues Festival

Chicago's Grant Park will be filled with every style and sound in the blues when the 28th annual Chicago Blues Festival is held from Friday, June 10 through Sunday, June 12, 2011. Sponsored by the Mayor's Office of Special Events along with various commercial supporters, the Chicago Blues Festival is the largest free admission blues festival in the world.

This year's event follows the lead of the 2010 festival, restricted to three days (instead of the traditional four) due to the economy; the festival will still feature more than 60 performances on 4 stages over the weekend as well as tributes to Delta blues great Robert Johnson and the 40th anniversary of Chicago's Alligator Records label.

With the temperature rising and spring starting to take hold across the U.S., 'tis rapidly becoming the season to listen to some great blues music in an open field with several thousand of your new best friends! The blues festival season is kicking off, and from now through September there are literally dozens of events scheduled that promise to excite and entertain.

We've taken a look at some of the performers hitting the festival trail this year, and you can catch such talents as Elvin Bishop, Janiva Magness, Robert Cray, Michael Burks, and Big Bill Morganfield out on the road at a festival near you.
