Safety first… Current Status of Festivals & Events

No Comments Latest Blues News

Safety first

In solidarity and for the safety of all, a large majority of upcoming events at least into May 2020 have been cancelled or at least postponed for the time being with a few having rescheduled. Many that have postponed are logically still debating the monumental logistics of rescheduling. We will keep you informed on updates as we can. Those that have cancelled are looking forward to coming back like gangbusters in 2021!

In the meantime, we hope that you are staying as safe as possible. We hold out hope and believe that human kindness will excel in spite of the hardships so many of us may be facing in general now.
