While most people ‘cry the blues’ over Winter, the River City Blues Society is gearing up to heat up the city with its 2nd annual Winter Blues Festival (WBF). Last year’s inaugural sold-out event brought together nearly 600 Blues enthusiasts to hear exceptionally talented artists like Big Dave McLean, Romi Mayes, Tim Butler, Justin Aron, B-Side Champs, the Perpetrators, Jungtion and Tracy K. Winnipeg’s strong support for this event has now allowed us to move our 2nd Annual WBF to a larger venue, specifically The Metropolitan (downtown Donald Street).
Further, the continued support we have received to date has also allowed us to reach out more globally for talent, ultimately positioning us to create an international stage here in Winnipeg that would be shared with local artists. For example, our Saturday March 9th 2019 WFB will headline artists like Erja Lytinnin from Finland (2017 Best Guitarist in the European Blues Awards), along with other internationally renowned artists like Sue Folie and Samantha Martin. The stage will also be rocking-the-blues with the locally talented Prairie Whiskey along with the down-south Dixieland sounds of the Dixie Beats. And there’ll be more………
You definitely wouldn’t want to miss out on this upcoming great night of Blues entertainment!
