The 5th annual St. John Blues Festival opens Wednesday night with a festival party in the Mongoose Junction Courtyard in Cruz Bay. Admission is free. The event features Danny Morris. The rest of the week offers lots more free music, put together by island music entrepreneur Steve Simon. Thursday night, it’s 2 Blue Shoes at Compass Rose (aka Pastory Gardens) and Friday, Rob Peck at Shipwreck Landing in Coral Bay.
The big concert will be Saturday night at the Coral Bay Ball Field. The show starts at 7 p.m. and stars Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen, Billy Gibson, Joey Gilmore and T-Bird and Friends. Tickets are $30 at the gate. Here’s the official Festival Web site.
