The Capitol Centre’s Bluesfest returns Thursday

Excitement continues to build for the Capitol Centre’s Bluesfest. 

That from Caroline Parnell-Barry, Marketing Director, who says they start off Thursday with a free event. 

“We’re starting off at 7 pm with a screening of the Blues Brothers original 1980 movie and that’s free.  You do have to get a ticket as there is controlled entrance,” she says. 

Parnell-Barry says Thursday night also features the added Blues Cruise with some tickets still available, at last check.

The second cruise was added after Friday’s original Blues Cruise sold out. 

Saturday and Sunday will feature plenty of music. 

“The concerts are both outdoors, right here on Main Street in a gated area,” says Parnell-Barry.  “We will be getting people to do a passive screen when they enter, putting a wristband on and they’ll need to wear a mask until they’re seated.  Just like in a restaurant, once you’re seated you can take (the mask) off.” 

She also says the musicians are really looking forward to performing. 

“They’re very excited because the opportunities have been very few and far between and this is how they make their living and how they enjoy their life as well because music is very personal,” Parnell-Barry says. “There are twelve different live blues acts, six on Saturday and six on Sunday, that’s a big deal.” 

Jack de Keyzer and Crystal Shawanda are the headliners.
