Piedmont Blues Preservation Society Presents the 28th Annual Carolina Blues Festival
The 28thAnnual Carolina Blues Festival heads to downtown Greensboro this weekend in beautiful Festival Park.
Carolina Blues Festival 2014 will feature a veritable Who’s Who of Blues talent live in concert all day long and a fun new interactive educational segment called The Gospel of the Blues, the brainchild of local scholar/lecturer/performance artist and storyteller Logie Meachum.
The Fest begins Saturday, May 17 at beautiful Festival Park in downtown Greensboro. It’s the longest running Blues fest in the southeast—coming up on 30 years—and this year the main stage will be graced by eight Blues legends performing throughout the day. Children under 12 get in free, and it’s all happening under the big tent rain or shine.
Blues week before the fest continues tonight at 7:00 PM with Lawyers Guns & Money live at Mack and Mack Clothing in Greensboro. Carolina Blues Festival 2014 is the primary fundraiser for the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society, a 100% grassroots volunteer endeavor dedicated to promoting and preserving this incredible American Blues art form. Arguably no one has been more dedicated than PBPS Trustee, and longtime Carolina Blues Festival Chairman John Amberg. He spoke with David Ford.
