2015 Boise Blues Festival

Sunday, July 19


In the 2012 music documentary Life of Riley, blues legend Riley Ben "B.B." King said, "There are so many sounds I still want to make, so many things I haven't yet done." The King of Blues died on May 14, at the age of 89, but had been touring up until mid-2014—still exploring the art form he helped define.

A little more than two months after his death, it only seems fitting to do some blues exploration of our own with the 22nd annual 2015 Boise Blues Festival at Julia Davis Park.

Sponsored by the Boise Blues Society, settle in for six hours of live music featuring renowned guitarist Matthew Curry, along with Freudian Slip, Hoochie Coochie Men and the Ben Rice Band.

Admission is three cans of food, benefiting the Idaho Foodbank.
