The Robert Cray Band - Photo by www.starznbarz.comThe Knology Clearwater Sea Blues Festival drew an enthusiastic combination of blues fans and seafood fans to Coachman Park this past weekend, for a three-day celebration of both.

The Sea Blues Festival kicked off with the strong vocals of Tampa local Julie Black, and culminated in a rousing performance from John Mayall, the 76-year-old “godfather of blues.” A diversity of blues performers entertained the crowd, including Grammy-award-nominated Tab Benoit from Louisiana;  the Robert Cray Band, winners of the Best Contemporary Blues Grammy; Shawn Murphy of Little Feat; and the amazing Serbian guitarist Ana Popvic, who can be seen in the documentary “Turn It Up,” aka “Tone,” which explores the world's best guitars and guitar players.

Since its inception in 2006, the Clearwater Sea Blues Festival has been drawing top blues talent. Like the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, this Coachman Park concert series is free, with performance fees for musicians paid through sponsorships and concessions.
