Saturday Blues

Saturdays, noon - 3 p.m.

Every week on Saturday Blues you will hear blues songs from the 1930s to yesterday! The show always starts with “Good Times” by Aretha Franklin followed by church music or Gospel songs. All the original blues singers came from the church in one way or another, good or bad. 

As Muddy Waters once said, "You get a heck of a sound from the church. Can't you hear it in my voice?"  Although it's not blues, the show always finishes with Van Morrison because he loves the blues; and hosts Brother Frank and Father Jay enjoy listening to him. In between, there will be some Robert Johnson, delta and acoustic blues, electric blues, and horns.  The whole gamut including a few surprises!

 

This event showcases two days of world class blues music and the best BBQ-ers in the southeast competing for over $10,000 in cash prizes and the coolest trophies you will find anywhere! Pro Circuit & Auxiliary competitions include People’s Choice, Best Sauce and Best Dessert. This weekend equals fun for everyone with a Friday night bash, Friday night Pub Crawl through the Village, BBQ vendors, merchandise vendors, a kids zone, People’s Choice Competition and, of course, two days of the Blues!
