Here are the last of the 13th annual Blues Festival Guide print magazine “Show Your Blues Festival Guide (BFG)” photos.” We ask all year for folks to send in photos with the magazine and somehow we got a bunch all at once this past week! We thought we’d share as much as possible as we bid adieu to the 13th annual issue.
