On the way to the Bay

There’ll be no holding the blues at bay this weekend when the ninth Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival takes place on the sandy shores of Annapolis’ Sandy Point State Park. As we noted in our earlier post, this festival consistently offers a solid lineup, with the 2010 edition being no exception. Sharing the stage with blues legends Chuck Berry, Bobby Parker and recent Blues Music Lifetime Achievement award recipient Buddy Guy Saturday and Sunday will be an impressive mix of relative newcomers and veteran performers, from Moreland and Arbuckle, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm, and the Big Easy’s Anders Osborne to Shemekia Copeland, Tinsley Ellis, Big Bill Morganfield, the Yardbirds, Jimmie Vaughan with Lou Ann Barton, and Album of the Year (Between a Rock and the Blues) Blues Music Award winner Joe Louis Walker.

The BluesPowR Blog will of course be on hand to capture and bring you all the best the festival has to offer, but it’s also still not too late to grab your own tickets through either the festival’s website (through today) or at the gates.
