“News about Blues” is on the move but we’re skipping our November Blues Crier Newsletter. We are busy pulling together some GREAT Blues performers for our Winter Blues Festival Jan. 26, 2013. Also, this gives President Lynette Webster some much-deserved downtime while she heals from a broken ankle suffered “in the line of Blues duty” at King Biscuit Blues Festival. We all wish her a speedy recovery!

Many of our outstanding acts are winners of Blues Challenge Competitions around the Midwest–some not decided until this Fall. Your CIBS Board is busy putting together a Winter Blues Festival that will knock your socks off. So watch for the lineup in your December Crier.
