CFCR is excited to once again be a media sponsor for this years Saskatoon Blues Festival, taking place at multiple venues February 25th – March 3rd.
Heading into its eleventh year of celebrating the blues, the Saskatoon Blues Society is gearing up in anticipation of once again presenting some of the best musical artists the local, national and international music scene has to offer.
One artist of interest is Marcia Ball, an American blues singer and pianist who was born in Orange, Texas and grew up in Vinton, Louisiana. She is a five-time Grammy nominee, a nine-time Blues Music Award winner and has two recent wins for Best Contemporary Blues – Female Artist of the Year. Ball is the “real deal” and will bring equal parts of New Orleans, boogie woogie, swamp music and Texas soul all wrapped up into one package to the Electric Blues Cabaret Room stage at the Odeon Event Centre.
The Saskatoon Blues Festival Winter Meltdown is THE place to be for Saskatoon and area music lovers. You can check the full festival lineup at www.saskatoonbluessociety.ca
