Calgary Midwinter Bluesfest presents: A Walk Through Blues History
Shake off the winter chill with Calgary International Blues Festival! Hosted by Calgary blues favourite Jonh Rutherford, A Walk Through Blues History explores the history of the Blues, how it informs the music we hear today.
To sweeten the deal, Canadian blues-roots artist Suzie Vinnick Music will make a special appearance to discuss women in Blues.
