There is an embarrassment of riches this weekend in terms of live music outside in the Twin Cities. We spend some time previewing this weekend’s BBQ Blues Festival at Peavey Plaza. And, of course, we celebrate some birthdays: Billy Butler, Howlin’ Wolf, and Prince (!).
Today we focus on the upcoming Chicago Blues Festival (June 7 – 10) with a preview of artists playing the festival. We also spend a lot of time celebrating the anniversary of Curtis Mayfield’s birth in Chicago (June 3).
