15th Annual Blues by the Bay Line-up Released

The Fifteenth Annual Blues by the Bay line-up is here. After the loss of the longest running Blues Festival in the country, 1973-2009, (the San Francisco Blues Festival---due to production cost over-runs and a slow economy), Redwood Coast Music Festivals, (RCMF) is proud to announce the our 15th running of Blues by the Bay. The Labor Day weekend festival will be held again adjacent to the beautiful Humboldt Bay at Halvorsen Park, Eureka, California on Labor Day weekend, September 3rd & 4th.

Our Saturday and Sunday afternoon headliners feature Tommy Castro and Tower of Power with a power-packed line-up proceeding each of them. On Saturday morning Laurie Morvan hit’s the stage at 10:30 a.m., followed by Kaye Bohler, Deanna Bogart, and Joe Louis Walker, leading into the evening finale of Tommy Castro and his now Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue, where Bogart and Walker will join Tommy on stage in what Blues Fans will never forget. Speaking of Blues Revue, Castro is featured on this year's cover that includes a plethora of current music awards sending Castro to the top of charts.

On Sunday the show starts with our own local gospel choir, The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir at 9:30 a.m., followed by Twice as Good, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Earl Thomas, The John Nemeth Soul Revue, leading into the legendary music of Tower of Power at 5:20 p.m.
