The 2022 Cincy Blues Fest is set to be held at the Schmidlapp Event Lawn at Smale Riverfront Park July 16.
Blues music from a wide-ranging array of award-winning musicians will be performed from two stages at this 28th annual musical celebration.
Performers include International Blues Challenge Best Guitarist, Noah Wotherspoon, Grammy-nominated R&B singer Shaun Murphy, St. Louis-based musician Marquise Knox, 2022 Cincy Blues Challenge winners Blues Breakdown, plus David Burk, Bob Lese and more.
The event is put on by the Cincy Blues Society with a mission to “promote and advance the culture and tradition of blues music as an original American art form,” per a release. They say their hope is to honor the history of blues while “celebrating our present.”
