A Treasure Valley of Blues

update--SUNDAY JULY 16TH--
It is time to plan for the upcoming Blues Festivals. The Boise Blues Societies annual Blues picnic and Caldwell's “Blues in the Park.” The BBS picnic is Sunday July 17th. This years line up of talent may be the best ever. If you are a regular reader of this blog you have been following the continuing story of Underscore. They will be bringing their youthful interpretation of the blues to the park. Joining them will another winner from the Reef jam the BBS all-stars. With Streetwise and the Red & Gray Trio added to make a whole day of it.

The Blues Society was lucky enough to catch rising star Jason Rica and The New Blood for this summertime ritual. With the Boise Blues Society gaining so much this year the picnic will be a celebration.

With a bit of luck the latest Blues Society CD will be ready for release and available at the Picnic.

As always the admission to this event is very important. Your generosity is requested.Please bring at least a couple of cans of food. This otherwise free concert continues to be a showcase of blues and community giving.
