National blues artists scheduled to appear include Scott Holt on June 13, Ronnie Baker Brooks on June 21, Ana Popovic on June 28, Tab Benoit on July 19, Anthony Gomes on July 26, Laith Al Saadi on Aug. 2 and Larry McCray on Aug. 9.
Just looking at the schedule I would have to say that someone knew what they were doing. Larry McCray is awesome. One night I seen him play at Sheffield's a now defunct bar on Court Ave in Des Moines. It was almost like seeing Albert King/Stevie Ray at their finest. In fact, it was probably one of the five greatest blues gigs I have ever seen. ROAD TRIP!!!
