Boise Blues Society's Annual Sunday Blues Festival

Sunday, July 20


By thinking outside of the box, The Boise Blues Society will not only fill Julia Davis Park with blues lovers, but will help fill the shelves at the Idaho Foodbank: Admission to BBS' Annual Sunday Blues Festival is three cans of food.

For a donation of three cans of food to the Idaho Foodbank, aficionados and the uninitiated alike can spend a day listening to live performances by local acts the Boise Blues Society Band, Smooth Avenue, "Mississippi" Marshall Hopper and the Zack Quintana Band. Then at 4:30 p.m., Texas-born Hamilton Loomis, a young man with an old soul, will take the stage with blues so cool, you won't mind the heat.
