Amelia Island Blues Festival Kickoff Concert

March 17th, 2011 by theAddison

The Amelia Island Blues Festival isn’t until September but they are putting on a pre-festival “Taste of The Blues” concert next weekend just to get things rolling.  The concert is on March 26th from noon until 9PM down at Main Beach.  The concert itself is free but there will be beer, wine and food available for purchase.

This promises to be a great day for the blues.  The band line-up includes Karl Davis, the Beech Street Band and the Julie Savage Band.  This is a perfect time of year for an outdoor concert.  The weather the last few days has just been hitting 80 degrees with low (comparatively) humidity and nothing but sunshine!

As an added attraction, T-Bone, that big blue hound and the Blues Festival mascot, will be making an appearance.  I wonder what Maggie Doone will make of that dog?
