Blues From The Top Music Festival, Winter Park

Cool down with some HOT music this weekend in Winter Park! Some of the finest Blues musicians in the nation will gather in Winter Park for four days of live Blues music. From Thursday, June 27 through June 30th you will get your fill of incredible vocalists and some smokin’ guitar play. Better yet, all of this entertainment will assist the Blue Star Connection, a nonprofit entity that provides guitars, bass guitars, harmonicas, violins, keyboards, flutes and drum kits to children fighting cancer and other life threatening situations. In addition to the instruments they give, the Blue Star Connection provides music therapy programs and opportunities to attend live music events. A portion of your admission will go towards the Blue Star Connection and other music programs in the Grand County school system. Now that should wash your blues away!
