Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival Sizzles on Florida's West Coast

Coachman Park
Clearwater, Florida

The 12th annual Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival delighted blues diehards at downtown Clearwater's Coachman Park. Enhanced by a breathtaking waterfront backdrop, the two-day event spotlighted Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band as the Saturday headliner (and was SOLD-OUT for VIP/Reserved seating) as well as George Worthmore, The Steepwater Band, Super Doppler, Greyhounds, and ZZ Ward. Rock Legends Photographers' Michelle Wilson and Michael Yanko were on hand for Day Two featuring killer sets from David Julia, Rusty Wright Band, Samantha Fish, Toronzo Cannon, and headliner Ana Popovic.

The afternoon and evening boasted the allure of picture-perfect weather as spectators staked out their spots, setting up blankets and lawn chairs, basking in the sun, shopping at various vendors, munching down on delectable cuisine while sipping adult beverages, and enjoying the general splendor of this extremely fan-friendly event. While there were some VIP and reserved seats available for purchase, the general admission entry was FREE thanks to the generosity of numerous sponsors. This is a festival done RIGHT from start to finish, and Clearwater is indeed lucky to host this weekend year after year. There was a very warm vibe flowing throughout the park as the artists graciously engaged in Meet & Greets at the merch booth, posing for photos, signing autographs and chatting with eager music enthusiasts. A truly magnificent time was had by all, and attendees are already looking forward to next year!
