Columbia Pike Blues Festival 2017

This year's Columbia Pike Blues Festival featured a number of local and nationally-known blues artists, including the Sol Roots band, Jonny Grave, Full Power Blues Band (pictured), Rufus Roundtree  and the B'more Brass Factory, and was headlined by two-time Grammy winner Bettye LaVette.  Also featured was Katherine E. Young, the Poet Laureate of Arlington, reading a piece she has written about Columbia Pike.

Thanks to the festival (and our!) sponsor, the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization (CPRO), especially Cecilia Cassidy and Amy McWilliams, for their hard work in bringing this annual cultural event to our community.
