Blues lovers need to travel to Grafton September 19th and 20th for the annual Paramount Blues Festival. This festival honors all the fabulous artists that recorded music for Paramount Records in Grafton. The Grafton Blues Association has made it their goal to encourage involvement in the community and promote blues music and its history in school programs. The Blues Festival will help raise funds for its "Blues in Schools" programs, renovating the location where the Wisconsin Chair Factory once stood and the cost of producing its annual Paramount Blues Festival. This open air concert will host music by such artists as the 2008 Grafton Blues Challenge Winners Sue DaBaco & Wise Fools, Grammy winner David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Bryan Lee, Sharrie Williams, Elvin Bishop and 2007 festival favorite Zac Harmon. There will also be a guitar workshop for kids and adults as well as a Jug Band. Make sure to bring a chair or blanket to sit on, as rental chairs are limited. Food and drinks will be available for sale. Coolers, pets and all outside food and drinks are prohibited. Merchandise, such as T-shirts, CDs and posters, will be available for sale. Come out to Grafton and enjoy the blues!
