Bull Durham Blues Festival returns to Durham for a weekend's worth of local tunes and crooners, reminding us all that NC's really where it's at when it comes to fine music.

By Chelsea Pieroni
Get in touch with your local roots by indulging in a weekend of Piedmont-style blues. New to the area? No time like the present to really get to know it! The fact that NC has a bustling music scene comes as no surprise to us, but the 28th Annual Bull Durham Blues Festival will shed a whole new light on what you knew, or thought you knew, about blues.

On Saturday the Hayti Center, a beautiful church repurposed into a social, cultural and artistic hub located in the area formally known as "Black Wall Street", opens its stage for a VIP, featuring guitarist and harmonica player Grady Champion, vocalist Jean Carne, drummer and band leader Norman Connors and saxophonist Kim Waters. Note, Saturday isn't free! Ticket prices range from $40 to $50, but all seats in the house guarantee you a killer view of the venue's unique interior and of the band.

On Sunday all performances, including Grady Champion, Jason Damico and Pat "Mother Blues" Cohen, will take place en plen air in Durham Central Park for FREE! Grab your lawn chair, snag a bite and chill under the sun with some great local talent.
