Lineup Announced for 13th Annual Russian River Blues Festival

The initial list of performers for this year's Russian River Blues Festival, set to take place on Johnson's Beach in Guerneville, CA on June 13th and 14th, has been announced. As always, there are some deviations from what the "blues" part of the title may lead one to expect as far as the festival's programming goes, but it only leads to some nice surprises. Case in point: Los Lonely Boys and Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks. 

Once thing to note about the venue: it's literally right on the Russian River. So if you want to watch the festivities from the comfort of an inner-tube, then this is your party. There will also be 3 wine-tasting sessions, featuring various selections from the famous Northern California wine country. Two-day passes for the festival will be $80, with $45 for a one-day ticket in advance. Single-days can be purchased at the gate for $50. For more info, go to the festival's website
