"The first-ever festival of its kind in Fairbury will feature various styles of blues music from three talented musicians and of course, great BBQ,"  according to event organizer, Julie Katz, owner of the Tasting Room inside Stagecoach Mall Antiques in downtown Fairbury. The festival will begin at 4 p.m. and will feature three shows, each spotlighting musicians who regularly play blues shows around the region.
