There was no way to know the ground-breaking impact musicians John Lee “Sonny Boy” Williamson, Tampa Red, Big Bill Broonzy and others would have when they sat down to record their incredible sound at the Leland Hotel in downtown Aurora in the 1930s. As soon as those guitar strings were plucked and their soulful voices filled the air, everything we knew about blues was changed forever, and Blues on the Fox celebrates that monumental piece of history. For 21 years, blues musicians from across the world have gathered in Aurora to play their hearts out to blues-loving crowds in the thousands, and this year’s lineup is sure to get your head swaying and feet grooving. This year's line-up includes: Shemekia Copeland, Mavis Staples, Guy King Band, Devon Allman, Elvin Bishop and Jonny Lang. (See the RiverEdge web site for full concert line-up and details).

Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to sit in the grass. Before your arrival, please read the RiverEdge Park policies from their web site. Photo: Jonny Lang by Joe Ryan
