Westport 6th Annual Blues, Views & BBQ Festival

The 6th Annual Westport Blues, Views & BBQ Festival takes place Saturday August 31 and Sunday September 1. Westport is responsible for shaping my music consciousness the past 45 years.

I have seen several notable acts at Staples High School such as The Youngbloods, J Geils Band, Tom Hardin, Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, Taj Mahal (with the Howard Johnson Tuba Orchestra), The Mahavishnu Orchestra , and Peter Frampton.

There was the venerable Players Tavern an intimate club setting where I saw Muddy Waters, Peter Tosh, Toots and the Maytals, Pat Metheny, Richie Havens, and Melanie.

I like the idea of gastronomic delights intermixed with great blues/rock music. Feed the stomach and nurture the soul.

Sunday September 1st’s schedule features:
