On June 8, Bogue Falaya Park will host Bluesberry Festival, which coincides with the peak of blueberry season. Organizers say the Festival is “a perfect escape for blues music and art aficionados who want to ‘experience’ the arts amidst Southeast Louisiana’s beautiful natural landscape.”
Bluesberry Festival will feature an interactive arts tent, live art demonstrations, 30+ original art vendors, a children’s village, and a rejuvenation station with yoga. Of course, they’ll be tons of live music, too.
Texas native Casey James, a singer, songwriter and guitarist who is familiar to many as a finalist on season 9 of American Idol, will headline the festival along with Johnny Hayes, an Alabama native whose rock-blues style gained national notoriety on Season 12 of The Voice when he landed a spot on Adam Levine’s team. Another must-see performance is Baton Rouge native Jonathon Long, Guitar Center’s 2011 “King of the Blues” whose self-titled album recently reached #8 on Billboard’s Blues Rock Album Chart. New Orleans’ own Charmaine Neville, daughter of one of the highly acclaimed Neville Brothers, will also take the stage with her spicy mix of the best of New Orleans music – blues, jazz and R&B. Other acts include New Orleans-based blues artist Eric Johanson, who was nominated for Best Blues Album of 2018 by Offbeat Magazine; New Orleans-based blues guitarist Steve Mignano; Northshore-based vocalist Tyler Kinchen; and Northshore-based singer/songwriter Crispin Schroeder.
