Wallace Will Sing Blues This Weekend

From Historic Wallace Blues Festival Facebook wall: "Ian Siegal from England will be our closer on Saturday (July 13). We have such a great line up coming together. 4 stages, no sometimes 5, stages. The Best in Blues, Red cups, dancing and laughter on the streets of the most beautiful town in Idaho."

The town of Wallace will host its second annual Blues Festival this weekend, highlighting the music of blues bands from Washington, Idaho and beyond. Wallace may be a small town – its population is just shy of 800 – but they’re looking to make a mark on the summer music festival scene. The first fest was named 2012’s Best Blues event by the Inland Empire Blues Society and welcomed nearly 2,000 attendees. This year’s festival should prove to be even more successful: Not only are there more scheduled performers, but two new outdoor stages have been added to the mix. There will also be a beer garden set up near the main stage, with even more music going on in between the headlining artists’ sets. From early Friday evening to late Saturday night, 21 different musical acts will be performing at various venues throughout town/Nathan Weinbender, SR. More here.

DFO: Am I the only one who remembers the Coeur d'Alene blues festival at City Park?

Question: How many blues fans out there?
