The 22nd Annual DC Blues Festival is happening this Saturday, September 4, at Carter Barron Amphitheater in Rock Creek Park. Besides enjoying a little Billie Holiday now and then, I don’t know a lot about Blues music and won’t pretend to, so I’m just going to pass along the facts.
The concert is free and runs from 12pm – 7:30pm; gates open at 11:30am. Along with the line-up of performers, there will be musical workshops throughout the day, where both children and adults can learn about Blues music. Kids will especially enjoy the opportunity to try making their own music at an instrument petting zoo.
