This past week-end, August 7 & 8, 2010 I drove down to Durand, Wisconsin for the 3rd Annual Blues on the Chippewa. I wanted to listen to some blues music and while I was there I was going to photograph the different bands. There were going to be 16 Blues Bands over 2 days!
I originally was only going to attend the first day, but I had such a good time that I changed my plans for Sunday and drove back down. Everyone I met associated with the festival were great. The festival was put on by the Chippewa Valley Blues Society.
If you're into the blues I would suggest you check this festival out next year. It’s about a 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities. Next year I’ll plan ahead and probably stay somewhere in the area instead of driving back home.
I’ve posted the first days photos of the different bands I shot on my Chuck Ryan Photography website. This is the link to the actual folder where all the photos are located for Day One. Under each photo is a link to the band’s website / Myspace if I found one. There is another link “More Photos” where each of the bands photos are located.
Thanks again to the Chippewa Valley Blues Society for putting on an excellent festival.
I’m working on the photos from Day 2, but they probably won’t be posted until (hopefully) next week. I have another busy week-end shooting. Either one day up at the Bayfront Blues Festival and two days shooting different models or two days up at the blues festival and a model shoot on Sunday.
