We Found the Formula for the Best BB&S Ever!

BBS 2016 (8)As many of you know this was our fourth annual Blues, Brews & Stews Winter Festival and each has been different. We began at the Yellow Rose B&B, then went to the Eagles for #2 and the VFW Ranch for #3. All the while we discussed ways to bring it to Greenfield’s downtown business district. The answer came from asking Spark Creative Artspace to host one venue and Mark Clyburn’s Catch 22 Sports Pub the second. The results were, largest crowd ever, greatest number of food entries, the crowd came from all over our area and I saw people from both Kentucky and Rhode Island. The crowd also stayed up to when the last G chord was strummed by Gary Williams & Back Talk Blues doing electric blues and Micah Kesslering performing his brand of classical acoustic country blues.

Didn’t see a frowning face or hear a disparaging word. Several people shared their “best part of the evening” thoughts with me but my best part was seeing almost no empty parking places in downtown Greenfield on a Saturday night. Our village, with the help of all who worked to make it happen and all those who came out and showed their support, came to life this February 27.

One of the most oft played and recorded blues song, Baby Please Don’t Go.
