Advance tickets to this year’s Boise Blues Festival on Sunday July 16 are just $25, no added fees or tax, for a whole day of great blues music, what a deal!! BBF2017.eventbrite.com/
We think this is an excellent value for far and away our best festival lineup ever! Our focus is on a 25th year reunion, featuring several artists who have successfully graced our recent events.
Headlining the festival will be Portland blues icon, Curtis Salgado, the man who inspired the original Blues Brothers. Another Portlander, fast rising Lisa Mann and her band, also returns to Treasure Valley after a pair of triumphant appearances. Both Lisa and Curtis sold out previous BBS shows at the Sapphire Room.
And speaking of sell-outs, Johnny Rawls has sold out a pair of shows in the past year at Playhouse Boise, earning an invite to the festival as well. He will again be backed by JT and Smooth Avenue. Leo “Bud” Welch is an 85-year-old Mississippi Delta bluesman billed as the last of the original Mississippi blues guitarists. The lineup is completed by popular Boise band, The Blues Addicts, accompanied by The Brass Tacks horns.
