Blues Line

Thanks once again to George Hines, Owner of George's Music and sponsor of the event, and Sam Veal, promoter of the event, for putting on another wonderful, talent filled, free blues festival. Next year will be the twentieth anniversary and I'm already looking forward to attending. Good job guys.

Skinny Legs And All (L-R) Paul Chelmis, Keybaord; David Cate, Guitar; Jesse Barry, Lead Vocals; Colin Hanson, Drums; Avi Goldstein, Bass. Every festival I go to I look for what I call my "Surprise Star of the Show". It's usually an act that I've never seen or even heard of and then get totally blown away by them. For the 2009 Springing The Blues Festival, Skinny Legs and all is my "SSS". What an awesome act! These youngsters have a heck of a future ahead of them.
