Blues Fest - 25th Annual - September 13, 2015

 

Rick Walls with Epic Wind

Hairy Larry's Merry Pranksters kicked off the 25th year of Blues Fest. In addition to Hairy Larry on harmonica and guitar, the Pranksters included veteran performers Don McGregor on lead and steel guitar and Bob Garrison on bass. These outstanding musicians are incredible vocalists who know how to deliver a song.

Next up was Striding The Blast. Blues Fest attendees have been fortunate to have the opportunity to see these amazing young musicians evolve over the past few years. Singer/songwriters James Carvell and Joey Hankins front the group which also included Jason Davis on percussion, Joe Camp on bass and Mark Meyer on guitar.

Epic Wind (house band for the Epic Center) closed the day with a set that included rock and country with a helping of blues in between. Epic Wind is Bob Garrison on bass and vocals, David Lind on lead and vocals, Rick Walls on rhythm and vocals, and Roger Scroggins on drums. These guys pack a lifetime of performing into their music and delight audiences with their versatility and repertoire.

With two more weeks of great music on September 20th and 27th the 25th year of Blues Fest is going to be memorable.
