The long and storied tradition of the country blues continues this summer at the Port
Townsend Country Blues Festival, as some of the finest contemporary
blues artists in the world, hand-selected by Artistic Director Phil
Wiggins, come to live, jam, teach and perform.
The dates: July 29-August 5, 2007
The Festival consists of a weeklong residential workshop where you can live, and jam with blues artists. At the end of the workshop, the artist/faculty take to the stage for public performances Friday night, and Saturday day and night. Performances take place in Fort Worden’s WWI-era balloon hangar, and in Port Townsend’s historic waterfront clubs.
