Blues Fest rocks Cincinnati
Thirty-thousand people are expected at this weekend's Cincy Blues Fest. Here's a preview of what you can expect on the 20th anniversary of the event.
Duke Robillard is no stranger to the blues business. For nearly a half century the guitar player has been building his fan base playing in bands like "Roomful of Blues" and "The Fabulous Thunderbirds." He's one of the headliners and will perform tomorrow night at Cincy Blues Fest. Spokeswoman Mary Beth Weaver says no matter when you come this weekend you'll be entertained on four stages at Sawyer Point.
"We also have Trampled Under Foot, Sister Monica, Super Chikan and we also have a number of great local acts as well."
Weaver says Cincinnati has a really rich blues community. There are more than 30 acts for this two-day event. Singer and guitarist Webb Wilder performs tonight.
