The 2016 River Valley Blues Festival has been set for August 20th at Salvage Station on the banks of the French Broad River. Located at 468 Riverside Drive, Salvage Station is a full-service music and event venue, with a restaurant and full service bar, permanent stage and state of the art sound system. The grounds include seating both on the ground and at scattered tables including right along the river.  The festival is a continuation of the event started in 2015 with the Valley Music House Blues Festival, and this year's line-up continues the tradition established there of excellent musicians delivering a variety of music in the blues, soul and r&b genres. Artists scheduled to appear include Bygone Blues, featuring PEggy Ratusz and Aaron Price; Riyen Roots & Kenny Dore; Rhoda Weaver and the Soul Mates; Stolen Hearts featuring Pam Taylor & Robert Johnson; The Zuzu Welsh Band; and this year's headliners Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats (seems appropriate to have river rats at a show on the river...). Tickets will be $15 and can be ordered through the venue. Contact Salvage Station at http://www.salvagestation.com/ for more information.
