Mississippi Valley Blues Festival
The annual Mississippi Valley Blues Festival will be held in Davenport, Iowa’s LeClaire Park July 3-5. This is a longstanding festival that has historically drawn big names. The lineup this year includes Kinsey Report, Elvin Bishop, Otis Taylor, Teresa James, Jimmy Thackery, Koko Taylor, Billy Boy Arnold, John Nemeth, Marie Knight, Tinsley Ellis, Doug MacLeod, and The Holmes Brothers. Divided between two stages, MVBF is three full days of great blues.
And, here’s the surprise. I’ve applied for press credentials for the show. With a little luck, I’ll be able to report on the performances and record interviews for The Roadhouse.
