Chicago’s legendary Blues Festival kicks off today in Millennium Park.
Friday’s Grant Park headliner is Bobby Rush, a prominent figure in the book Southern Soul Blues. Author David Whiteis describes Rush on stage as “fluidity in motion — at any second he may or may not be the character he was just an eye-blink before.”
Whiteis will also be at the Festival, splitting his between signing books in the Rosa’s Lounge tent on the midway and serving as an emcee at the Front Porch Stage.
