Big Muddy Blues Festival Celebrates Its Fifteenth Year on Laclede's Landing With Moreland & Arbuckle, Eric "Guitar" Davis, More

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 12:59 PM

The BIg Muddy Blues Festival will be back on Laclede's Landing for the fifteenth straight year this Labor Day weekend. Artists announced so far for the two-day event include Moreland and Arbuckle, Nick Curran and the Lowlifes, Magic Slim and the Teardrops and Eric "Guitar" Davis. Local luminary Kim Massie will also spearhead a tribute to famous female soul singers by featuring the music of Etta James and Aretha Franklin. In a press release, Beale on Broadway owner Bud Jostes, who is booking this year's line-up, says:

"This music festival is steeped in tradition, and this year's bookings honor that tradition with a focus on the core blues genres -- namely Soul, R&B and Blues itself. This year's group has both popular, nationally-known Blues artists and some St. Louis musicians whose talent and careers have earned them the spotlight of a main stage set."

Big Muddy -- which runs from noon to 11 p.m. on September 4 and 5 and will have over 30 acts performing on three separate stages -- is free.
