9th Annual T-Bone Walker Blues Fest
The Board of Director is pleased to announce that the 9th Annual T-Bone Walker Blues Fest will be held at the Maude Cobb Convention Center in Longview, Texas. Partnering with the City of Longview, the Corporation is excited at the opportunity to relocate to larger facilities, and to partner with a community where the festival can grow and engage a larger audience.
For the past 8 years, the Corporation has been blessed by its association with the Music City Texas, Inc, the Linden Economic Development Corporation, and the many sponsors and volunteers from the Linden/Cass County Community. Clearly, the Music City Texas Theater is a one-of-a-kind venue with a very personal feel, and the board and staff of the theater create a down-home atmosphere that cannot be matched anywhere. So there is a sadness in moving the festival. In the current economy, it was necessary to find a larger venue that could support a festival.
We hope that our fans will accept the move and join us in Longview for the festival which is scheduled for September 12-13, 2014.
The lineup will be posted once the performers are booked and under contract. Longview is the home to ABC Auto, who in partnership with Shreveport's World of Wheels and Music Mountain Water, hosted the car show. Plans are underway to have a larger car show on Saturday, September 13.
