You’d be surprised! There’s quite a bit of blues on tap this F3 season, we’ve already had the first act. On June 12, upstairs at Brewer’s Alley, we had legendary blues guitarist Tom Principato and his band for an amazing show…if you missed it…you missed something special!
An amazing show by an amazing set of musicians.
Next up is the Opening Night afterparty! Friday night, after the showing of “Salad Days” at the Weinberg, Frederick’s own Hard Swimmin’ Fish will be upstairs at the F3 Opening Night Afterparty…an opportunity to meet other festival goers, film pros, eat some good food, enjoy some Brewer’s Alley beverages, and listen to some amazing music from Hard Swimmin’ Fish! Your pass gets you in so there’s no reason not to come. Be there or be square.
Finally, Saturday Night…the F3 Blues Review with your host, Bill Wax!
The F3 is proud to be presenting the first F3 Blues Review! Following the Saturday, June 27th evening showing of the Patrick Branson film “America’s Blues,” which examines the impact of the blues on other art forms in America, former B.B. King’s Bluesville program director Bill Wax will host an evening of blues on the Weinberg stage. Featured blues artists will be Little Bit A Blues, The Big Boy Little Band, and Mary Shaver. The review is designed to highlight various styles of blues music.
To many, Bill Wax means the blues. He has likely forgotten more about the blues than most folks will ever know. His stints on WPFW’s Blues Plate Special and as program director of B.B. King’s Bluesville on XM/Sirius has established Bill as one of the foremost authorities on the blues. He brings that knowledge to the F3 Blues Review as he introduces the different shades of blue on the Weinberg stage that night.
