The Royal Room says
The Royal Room brings the blues to Seattle’s South End for the 3rd Annual Columbia City Blues Festival. Continuing the curatorial intent of previous years, the festival will be emphasizing the influence and works of one of history’s greatest blues legends. This years featured artist will be Willie Dixon. Remembered as one of the most prolific blues composers of his time, Willie Dixon was a fundamental force in shaping the sound of Chicago Blues after WWII. In addition to several sets honoring his legacy, the festival also features “... & The Blues”, Tribute to Johnny Winter and B.B King, The Music of Z.Z. Tops’ seminal album “Tres Hombres” and more!
