Festival reviews!
The Sparta Blues Fest 2001 picture gallery

Once again the Sparta Blues Festival drew some great talent to the City Park, and a crowd that simply couldn't be chased away by a little rain....okay, a LOT of rain! Fest director Debi Klausing must have prayed to the Blues Gods, as the thunderstorms and rain broke just in time for the Sauce Boss to announce he was there to share the "Glory of Gumbo" with all of us!

Following the Sauce Boss to the stage was Michael Burks, just in from playing a stint at the World-Famous Slippery Noodle Blues Club in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Michael simply tore the house down with his Southern influenced screaming Blues guitar. Backstage Michael had shared that he hails from a small town in Arkansas, and that Sparta made him feel right at home! He said "I'd be back here, whether Sparta wanted me or not"! Appreciation for this artist was evident by the reception he recieved during his crowd stroll while jammin' on his wireless guitar!

Unfortunately, StlBlues had to leave early, and was unable to stay for the Shemekia Copeland show

If any readers have any pics of her show, send them on in, we'll get them on-line!
Until next year, may all your Blues be minor.
