Blues in the Natural State gets bigger and better each year.
The 12th annual event expanded to a three-day festival across seven venues around Fayetteville last weekend.
The first performances of this year’s festival – an outdoor concert with Samantha Fish and Brick Fields and the Chosen Ones during Fayetteville’s First Thursday – was cancelled due to bad weather.
The rest of the event, however, went off without a hitch, and was highlighted by face-melting blues from Samantha Fish, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Lucious Spiller, Levee Town, Steve Pryor, The Cate Brothers and Tab Benoit.
Photographer Clayton Taylor captured some great images from several shows during the festival. Check them out below.
