Blues In Centennial Park This Weekend

blandNashville’s Centennial Park will come alive with the sound of the blues on Memorial Day (5/25), with the arrival of the Blues Spring Festival. The free show will feature blues legend Bobby “Blue” Bland in the headlining slot. Bland — a member of the Blues Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient — is indisputably one of the finest blues interpreters to ever to grace the genre. He’ll be joined by a stellar cast of blues artists including Nashville’s “Queen of Blues” Marion James, local bluesman Stacy Mitchart, James Nixon, Miranda Louise, Johnny Jones, Queen Ann Hines and Michael Holloway.

According to festival producer Carol Jenkins, “This festival will have all the makings of a great blues festival: great blues all day long, home-cooked food, and a touch of jazz. The entire Nashville community is invited to this free event.”

The blues festival is sponsored by The New Hope Foundation, an organization that provides humane and supportive services to terminally ill and HIV/AIDs persons in the Nashville area.
