Blues on the Chippewa, August 2, 2008

DURAND, WI, June 16, 2008 – A pending non-profit group has been formed to promote the first annual Blues on the Chippewa music festival in downtown Durand. Event organizers Rob Edwards and Dan Callan say they plan to use the August 2nd event to spearhead a donation drive for the Bread of Life food pantry in Durand.
“We thought it would be a great way of doing something useful on a grass roots level,” said Edwards, “as well as promoting Durand tourism and the blues revival that’s been growing in the area.” The free concert will be held in Memorial Park from 1-8:45pm and feature nine prominent regional acts.
Music will continue afterward at several different venues in town, with Bubba’s Back Door, the Construction Zone, Mick’s Garage, the River's Edge, Shari’s Chippewa Club, and the new Riverview Park all hosting live bands. Scheduled artists include Ellen Whyte, Cool Disposition, Mojo Lemon, Lucy Creek, Deepwater Reunion, Catya’s Trio, David Jones and the Jonestones, Left Wing Bourbon, and the Love Buzzards.
No cover charge will be taken at any location, though music lovers are urged to bring a non-perishable food donation. Official sponsorships are available for $25 and up. “Blues on the Chippewa is a chance for a lot of us to do a little something for the community,” Edwards continues, “and we hope to use the event on behalf of other worthy causes in years to come.”
