When: Aug. 12-14 2011
The notion of “getting into” the blues can be pretty intimidating, especially for those of us whose knowledge of the genre begins and ends with that bar scene from *Adventures in Babysitting.* Thankfully the Dutch Mason Blues Festival in Truro aims to please both novices and diehard enthusiasts alike. The Grammy-winning Texans Los Lonely Boys will be taking the stage along with the Eric Clapton-endorsed Gary Clark Jr. and Willie Nelson’s son Lukas Nelson, as well as Canadian blues legend Jack De Keyzer and British guitar whiz Joanne Shaw Taylor. Plus, there’s a friggin’ barbecue competition!
Price: $55.75 (Fri)/$78.75 (Sat)/$44.25 (Sun)/$159.25 (all-day pass)
