April 12, 2013 (Jacumba Hot Springs)--Spend a cool afternoon jammin’ to some blues that won’t “tax” your wallet at the free Jacumba Blues Fest on Saturday, May 4 in Jacumba Hot Springs.
The festival, sponsored by the Jacumba Arts Council, runs from 12-8 p.m. at Highland Community Center on Olde Highway 80. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy food as well as cold, non-alcoholic beverages while you listen to some “smokin’ blues,” organizers suggest.
“We are particularly excited about the variety and talent of the musicians who will be appearing,” enthuses Joe Marshall, Event Coordinator and one of the featured performers. “BC Blues, a real audience pleaser at last year’s event, is a group of seasoned music professionals....Shades of Blue will be playing and Alex Gomez and the Gomez Blues Project will also appear. This is a fine blues group from San Diego with quite a following." Other performers include Don Belter, Sage, Mama Christy Gilardi, and One Way Out.
Vendors with hand-crafted goods will also be on hand.
