All-day blues festival offering music, ‘healing’
The inaugural Village Blues Festival, featuring Anni Piper and five more Northwest-area bands, will be at the Village Green in Cottage Grove on Saturday, Sept. 5.
The nonprofit fundraiser – sponsored by the Rainy Day Blues Society – is for the Blues in the Schools (BITS) program.
BITS gives kids grades 1-12 an exciting, educational, and interactive glimpse of the world of blues music, teaching its importance not only in history, but in basic music appreciation.
