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. -ameliaislandbluesfest.com
