Eureka Springs Blues Weekend, Ruthie Foster

Ruthie Foster in Eureka Springs.

The 2012 Eureka Springs Blues Weekend is coming up, May 31 through June 2. As of this writing, we still have an opening at our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast that weekend.

Blues Weekend is the final act of the Eureka Spring May Festival of the Arts, and it’s hard to imagine a better way to wrap up a month devoted to art and creativity.

The blues is all about transforming suffering into beauty. Your lady up and left you, you lost your job, and your dog died. What do you do? You pick up a guitar and let the whole world know. In doing so, you overcome. That’s the power of creativity right there. That’s art.

Some of the biggest names in Blues will be performing in Eureka Springs May 31-June 2. They are Marquise Knox and The Cate Brothers, the Tommy Castro Band and the Ruthie Foster Band. Well known musicians and up and coming musicians will take the stage in The Basin Park Hotel Barefoot Ballroom, The Auditorium, Basin Spring Park, and various restaurants and clubs around town.

The Basin Spring Park shows are free and open to all. Other shows require tickets, and advance tickets are suggested.

Our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast is close to the Blues Weekend venues. Come listen to the Blues. It will cheer you.

Tickets and additional information are available at Eureka Springs Blues Weekend.
