Also performing, will be Eric Lindell, a 2007 BMA nominee for “Best New Artist Debut”. Eric is an Alligator recording artist, who says his claim to fame this last year has been the playing of one of his songs on the TV show “Boston Legal” while William Shatner danced to it, in drag.

Other bands playing on the 12th include Mississippi Heat, a great Chicago based Blues band, The Blues Foundations 2007 International Blues Challenge winner, The Sean Carney Band and Christian Blues artist and past favorite guest of Victory Faith church in Fort Madison, Jimmie Bratcher. Jimmie will also be performing at Victory Faith Church on Sunday the 13th.

These acts will all be performing on the main stage, but the music never ends from start to finish. Between the main stage acts, in The Scott’s Company Blues tent there will be live performances as well. On Friday the 11th, Hal Reed and Daniel Burnside will be performing, with Bad Luck City jamming with them later in the evening. On Saturday the 12th, the 2006 Iowa Blues Challenge winners and The Blues Foundations International Blues Challenge top ten finalists; The Juke Joint Sinners will also be performing in the Scott’s Blues tent.
