Blues Under the Bridge rides again this Saturday.
It’s that day of the summer when you walk around your westside neighborhood, and hear the faint sound of the blues waft by on the breeze.
Headlining this year is Sugaray Rayford. Other acts include Australian Kara Grainger, Alvin Youngblood Hart and Al Chesis and the Delta Sonics.
One of the coolest parts, in my humble opine, is the handful of free pre-festival shows at downtown venues.
Grainger plays tonight, Thursday, July 17, at 8 p.m. at Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse and Pub.
Hart plays from 6-9 p.m. Friday, July 18, at The Mining Exchange – A Wyndham Grand Hotel.
Chesis plays at 9 p.m. Friday, July 18, at Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse and Pub.
