  1. About time, but not exactly overly bluesy……yet. Let's see who else they come up with: Keb' Mo', Taj Mahal and Jimmie Vaughan would be a good start.

  2. Taj Mahal and we'll all be there! And how about Buddy Guy? And Duane Allman? And Lucky Peterson? And Melvin Sparks?

  3. if you want to knock the socks off this festival bring in Joe Bonamassa.people from far and wide will come..

  4. Well, how about the great Bobby Blue Bland – he's still playing live shows – THE singer, even at this stage in his career!
