Columbia Pike Blues Fest

17th annual street party is a draw for music-lovers

Roughly 7,000 blues aficionados flocked to the Pike on June 16 to enjoy live performances blending Mississippi Delta, Memphis, Texas rockabilly and Chicago-style riffs by artists such as Karl Stoll & the Danger Zone, Moondog Medicine Show, Danny Blew & The Blues Crew, and local favorite Chris Polk.

Headliner duo Sue Foley and Peter Karp presented “He Said-She Said,” a collaboration of original songs blending elements of folk, jazz, flamenco and blues.

The outdoor music festival also featured food and drink vendors, arts and crafts booth, kids’ activities and a guitar raffle.
