EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Blues run deep in the Chippewa Valley and on Tuesday nights in the summer you may just hear the music pumping from Owen Park in Eau Claire.
It's toe-tapping fare, free and family-friendly. The outdoor "Tuesday Night Blues" concerts feature local, regional and sometimes national performers. They run from late May through just after Labor Day.
They started back in 2008 and draw hundreds of people to the Owen Park band shell.
Last week, Howard "Guitar" Luedtke was featured. This week, the Swamp Kings will play.
Music starts at 6:30 and runs until 8 p.m. There's also food vendors and craft merchants on hand. The performances are sponsored by the Chippewa Valley Blues Society.
In additon to Tuesday nights, you can also find Blues music at a number of upcoming events. Blues on the Chippewa hits Durand August 1st and 3rd and Blues in the Pines will be in Fairchild September 5th and 6th.
