As Ann Arbor Blues Festival nears 50 years, exhibit offers iconic behind the scenes photos
This summer begins a year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Ann Arbor Blues Festival. The festivities kick off with a photo exhibit at the Ann Arbor Art Fair next week. The photos feature behind-the-scenes images from the 1969-1970 festivals.
James Partridge, executive producer of the festival, joined Stateside to talk about the scenes captured in the photos, some iconic musicians who have performed at the festival, and a preview of this year’s lineup.
