Inaugural Lone Star Blues and Heritage Festival Lineup Announced

By: PRLog

The best in Texas blues comes to East Texas the weekend of October 25 – 27, 2019.

GRAPELAND, Texas - Aug. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- The piney woods of East Texas are rich with blues history of enduring legacy. Considered the westernmost region of the Deep South; it is the birthplace of seminal artists including Blind Lemon Jefferson, Mance Lipscomb, T-Bone Walker and Lightnin' Hopkins. A younger generation of legendary Texas bluesmen including Albert Collins and Freddie King also hail from East Texas. Today, Benny Turner carries that legacy, a living link to the blues he and big brother Freddie first heard from their mother and uncles on the back porch of their Gilmer, TX home.

On two stages over three days, performers will showcase the wonderful array of blues music – rock blues, soul blues, folk blues, country blues plus a little bit of rock and some of the great guitar Texas is known for. From multi-award winners to young players just staring to emerge on the scene; to young and old; male and female; black and white; the audience will not only experience the modern-day flavors of electric blues on the main stage, but will also be transported back to the roots with acoustic music on the porch stage.  Benny Turner bridges those roots of the early years with a lifetime legacy of writing, producing and performing the blues all over the world as he celebrates his 80th birthday back home in East Texas that weekend.  This occasion of both historic and sentimental significance is a celebration not to be missed!
