2014 festival will be at the historic Bobwhite Theatre at 6423 SE Foster Rd, Portland. Fifteen Bands on two fabulous stages in one building! The artist line-up will showcase manyof the NW bands.
This year Winter Blues Music Festival is featuring a variety of musical genres from Jazzy, Blues, Mixed with Swing and some cultural music, such as 6 Muddy awards winner Kevin Selfe and the Tornadoes, Rae Gordon, Ben Rice, The Sale, Renegade Stringband, Davina and the Vagabonds from the Bay area, The Wired! Band from Seattle area, and many other fantastic bands.
Winter Blues Music Festival is thrilled to announce a collaboration with United by Music North America! We are working with UBMNA co-founders Amanda Gresham and Barbara Hammerman to add another performance and philanthropic dimension to our festival. United by Music North America can be described as the “Special Olympics of Music”, says Hammerman. It is a program for musically talented people who have developmental challenges such as Autism, Aspergers, and Williams Syndromes. UBMNA has been presented in the U.S. by Amanda Gresham’s Delta Music Experience, sponsor of the DME Blues Cruises and the Louisiana Pavilion at Waterfront Blues Festival.
Exciting pairings of our lineup of fabulous festival musicians with United by Music company members will enrich your spirit. These stellar musicians who are able to demonstrate their music abilities while providing the audience with outstanding musical experiences are not to be missed! You’ve seen them perform at Waterfront Blues Fest, Duff’s Garage, Jimmy Mak’s, Lola’s Room, Starkys Restaurant, and other locations in the Pacific Northwest.
What a great way to get rid of our "Winter Blues" and support your musicians of all genres.
The "Winter Blues" Music Festival will continue to support the Oregon Food Bank (OFB), the Children‘s Healing Art Project (CHAP). We ask that you bring 4 cans of food or more to help with the local food bank. Raffle drawing and silent auction items will be available.
