Blues Festival: 6 live shows in 5 days

Newlogo08450w
The 6th annual St. John Blues Festival schedule’s been released and there will be plenty of music for everyone.

The show founder and organizer, Steve Simon, said "We are tying this year’s Blues Festival into a ‘Ragin Cajun’ New Orleans Party with some of the greatest Blues talent to ever come out of the delta."

The Festival is dedicated to the Voice of the Wetlands to assist Tab Benoit’s efforts to put a stop to the dramatic and constant loss of Louisiana’s wetlands.  Benoit will be one of the stars of the festival’s main concert Saturday March 22 at the Coral Bay Ball Field.  Other performers include Chubby Carrier & The Bayou Swamp Band, Waylon Thibodeaux, and Sean Carney and the Sean Carney Band.

“The loss of Louisiana’s wetlands contributes to the loss of our unique culture, our heritage, our wildlife, our people and their livelihood”, said Blues legend and life long Louisiana wetlands resident Benoit.
