Calgary International Blues Festival lineup announced

BluesWire just got this via the wonderful world of Web 2.0 — it was sent to one of the groups our sister organization, Chicago Blues Tour belongs to on Facebook. It’s an eclectic schedule with a heavy sampling of blues-rock, but also includes veteran Chicago performer Roy Hytower, who made his name portraying Muddy Waters on stage here some years ago. Also our MySpace friends Blue Voodoo, a very tight R&B outfit based out of Vancouver.
