Mary Flower & Doug Cox • Ron Artis II & the Truth • Too Slim & the Taildraggers • Karen Lovely
Acclaimed, up-and-coming Hawaiian bluesman Ron Artis II & the Truth, favorites at both Soul’d Out and Pickathon festivals last year, are joined by the rockin’ Too Slim & the Taildraggers, Blues Award nominated blues vocalist/songwriter Karen Lovely and her band, and the acclaimed acoustic-blues virtuosos Mary Flower (Portland) and Doug Cox (British Columbia).
Cruise the beautiful Willamette River and hear the blues in an intimate setting on the Portland Spirit. A no-host hors d'oeuvres buffet and full bar are available on all cruises.
Don’t miss the boat! Purchase your ticket before the festival begins. These popular Blues Cruises sell out quickly.
