The Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival - 2008

It's always great to attend a fest where the spirit of the music is so alive, and revered by the community. The KCK Street Blues Festival was an example every fest, and every blues society could follow. 91 year old Myra Taylor - now in her 76th year of show business - was honored as 'Queen' of the festival. When you see the photos below, you'll see what we mean by honored. Basically the KCK crew, led by DaWayne Gilley, made this event a celebration of those musicians still living, with 5 birthday cakes on hand, and a memorial of those departed. Included among those honored was St. Louis' own Henry Townsend. Kudos to Dawayne, Cathy, Judge, Joe, and the countless volunteers that pulled this event off so well!

Mark your calendars now for 2009, and start repeating "Kansas City, Kansas City here I come". You'll be glad you did, and tell the KCK Street Blues Fest that STLBlues sent you! Enjoy our photo gallery below!
