Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Fest in Full Swing

After a great dance on Wednesday, we're getting ready to launch into a busy weekend of concerts at the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. We've included a list of upcoming shows below. For complete information, including performance previews, head over to our Blues site.

On Saturday afternoon, we welcome the Ebony Hillbillies  – one of the last Black string bands – to the stage. The video above shows them playing in the New York Subway – priceless!
