Picture this: A crisp blue sky hovering over a grassy park with San Diego bay on one side, a marina and downtown skyline on the other and some great blues music all around. The San Diego Blues Festival will include all that, as well as three members of the Blues Hall of Fame, a shining new blues star and a Grammy winner.
