25th Ojai Bowlful of Blues

A celebration of the blues and community will take place on Saturday, September 22, when Bowlful of Blues rolls and rocks into Ojai's Libbey Bowl for its 25th edition! Headlining the festival, on a national tour for Alligator Records, is acclaimed young blues guitarist Selwyn Birchwood, described by Rolling Stone as a major player and remarkable contemporary bluesman.

In addition to Selwyn, Libbey Bowl will be filled to the brim with the Texas Blues/New Orleans R&B of Teresa James & the Rhythm Tramps, West Coast/Chicago style harmonica master Rod Piazza with special guest Carl Sonny Leyland, the Louisiana mix of Hot Roux, and the electrifying Kwan Telifaro Project. So mark your calendars for Saturday, September 22, from 4:00 to 9:30 p.m. in downtown Ojai.

A limited number of vendor spaces are available for food, crafts, and blues-related items. Volunteers are welcomed to help staff the event. For all information visit bowlfulofblues.org and facebook.com/OjaiBowlful.

Ojai's hometown American roots music festival, founded in 1983, will take place from 4:00 to 9:30 p.m. with gates opening at 3:00 p.m. A variety of food and spirits will be on hand as well as arts, crafts and blues music booths. Picnicking on the lawn is welcome.

Bowlful of Blues is presented by the Community Advocacy Coalition of Ventura County (the-cac.org) and their affiliate FM and internet radio station, Rhythm of the Coast (rhythmofthecoast.com), in association with the Kaufer Brothers and Hi-hat Entertainment. As in 2016, a portion of proceeds from Bowlful of Blues will support acquisition of instruments and amplifiers for public school music classes and community recreation center programs with a plan to add roots music workshops and assemblies in Ventura County Schools.
