Festival 59 Blues is in it’s first year and is one of a number of great music festivals in the region this summer. With the Summer Winds Festival on July 20-21, Fire and Water, this coming weekend and Festival 59 Blues the following weekend, there’s no shortage of great acts to see in the area.

Festival 59 is hosting a boatload of great talent from Winnipeg’s blues scene. The line up includes Cruise Waters, DB & The Deadbeats, Tracy K Band, Malcolm Campbell Band, Greg Leskiw, Dustin Harder’s Prairie Soul, SouthThunderbird and the king of Winnipeg blues, Big Dave McLean.

All the fun happens at Hilltop Resort on (surprise) Highway 59 near Grand Marais. The music starts at 8pm on Friday August 10 and finishes up at midnight the next day. Tickets are available at Tixit.ca or at the gate.
