Westport Blues Festival

This is a daily event, running from September 6, 2013 through September 8, 2013. Westport Inn, Westport, WA Website
Located 70 miles west of Olympia and nestled against the mighty Pacific, Westport is a relaxed, peaceful town. Travel west to where the calm marshlands and unending ocean can wash away the bustle of modern life. This quiet fishing town is home to many generations of both those who make a living off of the ocean and those who live for the sea. Surfers, bird watchers, and beachcombers of every age call Westport home. What better backdrop than this town-out-of-time for a weekend of timeless music? Come to Westport, Washington for three days of blues, food, and fun this September! Located at the scenic Westport Inn, get ready for Westport Blues Festival’s 13 blues acts to sooth your soul and lift your spirit. Framed against the dramatic Pacific Ocean, acts from around the country will perform over the course of three music-packed days.

The 2013 headlining act is Lee Oskar, Danish harmonica player who contributed to the band War and who composed and recorded hits like ‘Low Rider’ and ‘Why Can’t We Be Friends’. Other acts include seven-time Native American Music Awards winner Jim Boyd, Mia Vermillion, and Alice Stuart. From pop to classic rock, rhythm, and blues, the Westport Blues Festival aims to celebrate music’s inherent vibrancy and originality. Kick back and relax with our award-winning performers playing you off into an evening of sandy beaches, incredible music, and unbeatable atmosphere.

In addition to the musical performances, take time out of the day to appreciate the beautiful marina esplanade. Experience some of Washington’s finest beer and wine at Westport Brewery, Cranberry Coast Winery & Bog Beer Brewery, and the Westport Winery. Take in the surroundings with fresh seafood and delicious dinner with a loved one before walking back to the Westport Inn

Enjoy the music and ambiance of the great Pacific Northwest this September, only at the Westport Blues Festival!
