Blinded By The Blues band set to play Festival main stage from 3 p.m. til closing

Blinded By The Blues will close the Festival, playing on the Festival main stage from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Festival grounds officially close at 5 p.m.

According to GigMasters:

Blinded By The Blues is playing high performance West Coast and Chicago blues with touches of rockabilly and Texas Shuffle. The group’s distinctive sound is influenced by many styles of music which has merged to form a unique sound. We are a straight-ahead blues band. It is our focus and passion. We’je incorporated a mixture of different blues styles into our repertoire.

The band features, and is anchored by the harp stylings of “Blind Bulldog” Ronnie Johnson. Ronnie, sight-impaired from childhood, was raised to be a musician by his stepdad, the great New Orleans piano player Ronnie Barron. He experienced this musical style at a very early age, and it is now part of his soul. He brings that same experience to the band and keeps us firmly grounded in the blues sounds of the 50’s and 60’s.
