Get the blues in Central Illinois. The annual Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues Festival in Bloomington started as a one-day musical tribute with five artists, but it has grown into a weekend-long celebration featuring some of the biggest names in blues and drawing more than 5,000 visitors.
Blues fans young and old are invited to kick back and enjoy the music July 20-21 at the General Electric Employees Club. Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy a variety of food vendors.
This year’s musicians include Sam Lay, Teeny Tucker and Rooster Alley. For more information and a full list of musicians, visit www.aintnothinbuttheblues.com.
