The Beaumont Blues Festival decorates the great outdoors of the Beaumont Agricultural Society Fairgrounds with music, food, and cold libations in a Labour Day long-weekend celebration of slow-cooked, strictly Canadian blues. Each day boasts a different lineup of musicians, all prepared to saturate the weekend in sure-footed shuffles, supernatural note bending, and accidental harmonica consumption. Saturday sojourners can start with the journeyman sounds of Joe Nolan at 1 p.m., followed by a slew of seasoned tune chefs that includes Thundermug guitar savant Bill Durst at 7:30 p.m. and Juno Award nominee Colin Linden at 9:30 p.m. Sunday sports another Canada-centric duodenary of winning singers and songsmiths, kicking off the day with the clawing wails of The Gray Cats Blues Band at 1 p.m., followed by the volcanic roots of The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer at 4:45 p.m. and the festival-closing swamp boogie of MonkeyJunk at 9:30 p.m. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, the festival has plentiful beer booths and food vendors for refuelling between rigorous finger-snapping contests.
Each night of the fest, guests are invited to Blackjacks Roadhouse for the after-fest party, where blues scholars can reflect on their weekend of toe-tapping dejection. Attendees can check the Beaumont Blues Festival website for pertinent information about shuttle busses and for romantic advice about two-timing recreational vehicles.
