Yet another popular fall event kicked off last night with the opening party and first night performances of the Carolina Downhome Blues Festival.

The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County and blues master Gary Erwin have been turning Broad Street into Beale Street for the weekend and this, the festival’s 21st year, should be no exception. Once again, they have put together three days and nights of real-deal blues in a number of venues around town and a good time awaits all who wish to partake. 

After two decades, we believe it’s probably safe to say that the Carolina Downhome Blues Festival has become a much heralded and popular tradition in Camden and Kershaw County. Originally put together as a showcase for venerated and skilled yet largely unknown veteran artists of a purely American art form and music genre, the festival has brought a wide variety of artists and visitors from around the world to our community. Indeed, the festival has developed a top notch reputation for musicians and fans alike.

It’s unique events and traditions like this that not only make our community so much fun but allows the world yet another chance to see what a gem this place we call home actually is.

If you have never been to the blues festival, we urge you to give it a try. If you’re returning, then you know what a treat you have in store for you.

Have fun, enjoy and be safe.
