Bringin the Summertime Blues to the Memphis of the North!

Four thousand kilometres away from Memphis, in the streets of the harbour city, blues music is making a home. Nanaimo is quickly being known for high calibre blues music and during last year's Summertime Blues Festival, CTV nicknamed Nanaimo the Memphis of the North. Nanaimo is living up to the name again this year as the Nanaimo Blues Society is proud to present Summertime Blues Festival 2014.

Mark it on your calenders folks, Summertime Blues 2014 is coming this August 22, 23, and 24th at Maffeo Sutton Park in Nanaimo, BC. This year the festival is celebrating amazing local talent and fantastic veteran masters. On Friday, August 22, starting at 4:30pm, Ian Perry takes the stage followed by Jayden Holman, Summer and the Sinners, and headliner Harpdog Brown.
