Blues music runs deep in St. Louis’ roots, and this weekend St. Louisans will celebrate the genre with one of the largest outdoor music events in the region.
On Wednesday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Don Marsh discussed the upcoming 2018 Big Muddy Blues Festival with co-coordinator Jeremy Segal-Moss.
“St. Louis is flush with music,” Segal-Moss said. “There are so many bands of quality and of historical importance … and even with the 70 bands that [will be at the festival], there could’ve been 125 without trying.”
Over the course of the weekend, scattered across seven stages in Laclede’s Landing, a variety of local bands will play more than 19 hours of music for listeners’ ears – and souls.
