Lyons to host WindyCity BluesFest Sep. 22-23

Headliners include Nellie “Tiger” Travis, Lurrie Bell, and The Mike Wheeler Band. Tomiko Dixon (granddaughter of blues legend Willie Dixon), and Buddy Guy’s daughter Carlise Guy and the NuBlu Band along with Deak Harp & Quicksand from Clarksdale Mississippi round out the big Saturday Showcase.

The largest booker of blues musicians at the Chicago Blues Fest has broken with the City of Chicago and is now booking entertainment for the Village of Lyons Blues Festival which will be held Sept. 22 and 23, 2018.

Dave Madlener, the president and founder of the Windy City Blues Society, said the two-day Lyons Blues Fest will be “the biggest independent production in years” promising a spectacular lineup of blues performers, musicians and singers.

The Lyons BluesFest will take place on two stages at Cermak Park in Lyons along Ogden Avenue just west of the Des Plaines River (about 7600 West Ogden Avenue in the forest preserve park area.)
