Signature 12-bar blues progressions came to prominence once musicians realized they were lamenting their sorrows inside 12 different bars each night. Provide a shoulder to sing on with today's Groupon to the 9th Annual Blues From the Top Music Festival, which takes place Saturday, June 25–Sunday, June 26 at Hideaway Park in Winter Park. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get a one-day daytime admission pass (up to a $31 value). • For $21, you get a two-day daytime admission pass (up to a $52 value).
In its ninth year, the Blues From the Top Music Festival treats avid ears to a shade-sporting collection of first-rate blues-belters against scenic Rocky Mountain vistas. Music-lovers can indulge eardrums with an indefatigable aural blitzkrieg from Chicago's Ronnie Baker Brooks on Saturday. Sunday's lineup features four-time Grammy winner Ashley Cleveland's refreshing blast of organ-backed gospel, as well as Jimmy Hall and Wet Willie, who enrapture audiences with riotous tales of deep-frying guitars for breakfast with the Allman Brothers. Festival-goers under 13 get in free for all shows. Check the schedule for more information.
