Blues at the Beach This Weekend

As you cross onto Amelia Island you will actually feel your pulse quicken, but in a good way. The radio goes up a notch as you roll into historic Fernandina Beach.  Like the smokey blues of the Old South. Out near the crossroads of Fletcher and Atlantic a new ritual is giving birth to the sound of a culture once feared lost. But for this one mystical moment the ghosts of Mississippi mingle with the spirit of pirates past and present.  Have no fear - the Amelia Island Blues Festival will steal your soul and give it back again.

Main Beach is turning blue this weekend with the arrival of the 4th Annual Amelia Island Blues Festival.  Fun and family-friendly, with a wide range of music styles, the Festival is a great reason to head to Amelia Island this weekend.  You can check out available accommodations here.  Here’s the musical lineup:
