September 10th and 11th
Hayti Heritage Center
Durham Performing Arts Center
After 22 years of pleasing crowds and introducing new fans to the soulful southern sounds of the "Piedmont Blues," this year's 23rd annual Bull Durham Blues Festival is excited to find a new home at the Durham Performing Arts Center.
For 23 years the St. Joseph's Historic Foundation, Inc. (SJHF) has presented the annual Bull Durham Blues Festival in the heart of historic Durham. Keeping with tradition, this year's festival promises to bring the same international, national and local talent to the stage, but this time at an even grander venue, and we couldn't be more excited.
Year after the year, the Blues Festival proves to be one of the city's most popular annual events. If you can only catch one weekend of performances in our area, this is one that should top the list. Whether you are a long time fan of Blues, or an interested newcomer, the Bull Durham Blues Festival is sure to satisfy your soulful cravings. This year Durham is proud to welcome The Wild Magnolias, Bettye LaVette, Buddy Guy, Ruthie Foster, Mel Melton & The Wicked Mojos, M.S.G. The Blues Acoustic Trio and The Bull City Youth Blues Band to the line up.
Start planing the perfect Blues Weekend Getaway today. Tickets to Friday night performances at the historic St. Joseph’s Performance Hall at Hayti Heritage Center and Saturday shows at the DPAC can be purchased online or by phone. Add a little relaxation and romance to your getaway by staying with us at the Arrowhead Inn while enjoying the Durham's Blues culture.
