Blues music lovers from all across the country flock to Henderson this week for the 22nd annual W.C. Handy Blues Festival. Blues artists performed in Audubon Park today featuring artists like the King Bees, Them Bones, and Sonny Landreth. A Children's Harmonica Workshop was also set up at the Riverbend Academy, and concessions and inflatable rides filled the streets.
Eyewitness News spoke to one man who traveled from Arizona to enjoy the Blues Fest.
"I love it," said Ron Harper of Phoenix, Arizona. "I love the music. The people are fantastic. The food is great. I make a point to come this time of the year."
The W.C. Handy Fest was named one of the top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
