The WinterFest Blues
The Hayes Performing Arts Center hopes to heat things up this
weekend, as the Winter Blues Festival hits the Blowing Rock stage.
Blowing Rock begins to buzz on Friday, Jan. 27, at 7:30 p.m., as Boone’s own The King Bees return to the Hayes Center for the Winter Blues Festival, also featuring Atlanta blues legend Beverly “Guitar” Watkins.
Tickets cost $20 and are on sale at http://www.hayescenter.org.
But there's more. On Saturday, Jan. 28, John Cowan, a pioneer in the “newgrass” and “jam band” musical genres and a fixture at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and MerleFest, will perform at 7:30 p.m.
Cowan first burst onto the music scene as part of the legendary New Grass Revival (with Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and Pat Flynn) and has since gone on to work with musical greats like The Doobie Brothers, Steve Earle, Wynonna and Garth Brooks.
Tickets for The John Cowan Band cost $26 and are on sale at http://www.hayescenter.org.
The Hayes Performing Arts Center is located at 152 Jamie Fort Road, just off U.S. 321 in Blowing Rock. For more information, visit http://www.hayescenter.org.
