20 years of Bluesfest, captured in a new book
The twentieth edition of the Ottawa Bluesfest got off to a rocking start last night - with performances from Tegan and Sarah, Gary Clark Jr. and Blake Shelton to name just a few. But the festival wasn't always the 10 day extravaganza it is now; back in 1994 it was just a small three-day event in Major's Hill Park.
Chris Cobb is a senior reporter with the Ottawa Citizen, and he's written a new book to mark Bluesfest's 20th anniversary. He joined us with an overview.
