February 16 in Iowa is the winter Blue Festival. Put on by the Iowa Blue’s Society this fest is filled with two days of music. A percentage of profits from Marriott is donated to local Blue’s program in schools. The rooms there are sold out. Bands such as Matt Woods, Joyann Parker & Sweet Tea, Scotty & the Wingtips, The Chris O’Leary Band and John Primer are set to perform. 13 acts on six stages in down town Des Moines. There might be bigger shows around the country but this is a very cool little program with bigger things surely to come in the future.
