Festival lovers can not miss this fabulous Winthrop Festival. Jimmy Smith of Winthrop has been a master at producing gigs starting with none other than famous Bill Graham. Alwasy a blues fanatic, Jim brought the festival here many years ago and since then every year has been quite an adventure. One year the catastrophic fires hit and The Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival opened the gates, showers, food you name it to the victims whilst various bands donated generously. Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble was one of the generous donors to the Carlton Complex fire raging on during the festival.
We are lucky to have Curley (but we surely do not wish for any more trouble) again this year along with many very hot bands. Stay tuned.
