Mark your calendars for the 2014 Blues, Brews and BBQ Festival, June 27th and 28th in Downtown Champaign, IL.
If you can’t make it home to the South this summer, this festival promises to be an exemplary substitute.
The music starts at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, with singer, Creole zydeco accordion player and Louisiana native, Rosie Ledet. Enjoy the festival all day Saturday, but be sure to stick around for blues musician Albert Cummings rocking the evening crowd just before the illustrious Buckwheat Zydeco takes the stage until midnight.
And get this — this event is FREE. An optional donation of $5 to support the festival is solicited at the gate.
