LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The weekend was pretty sunny for most of the Lansing area, but in Old Town, it was the blues.
The Michigan BluesFest attracted hundreds of people to gather and enjoy regional blues artists who represent different faces of the genre.
This is the 29th year for the festival, and there was lots to do for everyone. People were able to grab a bite to eat and get some drinks while listening to the sweet sounds of the blues from a lineup of more than artists from all over.
Organizers said it was a weekend of energy, excitement, music and coming together again as a community to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.
Kevin Dingle said BluesFest has become an annual event for him. “I’ve been coming to this BluesFest since 2010,” Dingle said. “It’s pretty good and I just enjoy the people, too. It just makes me feel at home, at ease, relaxed.”
