Summer Festivals

Dutch Mason Blues Festival

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! -Alison Lang
