Blues on the Mesa

Without a blues festival planned for Colorado Springs this year, local music promoter Amy Whitesell has stepped up to produce Blues On The Mesa. Gold Hill Mesa, a master planned community in Colorado Springs, is the title sponsor hosting the festival. Blues on the Mesa is scheduled for October 2, 2021 at Gold Hill Mesa, 142 S. Raven Mine Drive, CS, CO 80905, from noon to 6:00pm. The Pikes Peak Blues Community, a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization will receive a portion of all proceeds and host a silent auction and young peoples stage. The festival, in an effort to bring out fans early, will break protocol by STARTING the event with a 2004 Grammy Award winning artist who has toured the world over, Alvin Youngblood Hart. Mr. Hart is also the recipient of the prestigious W.C. Handy award for best new artist in 1997. Bluesman Taj Mahal once said about Hart,"The boy has got thunder in his hands". Next on the bill is The Cass Clayton Band, regional favorites blending influences of blues, rock, funk and soul in a new way. Ms. Clayton has become renowned for her powerful vocals and soulful slide guitar playing. The festival continues with Buddy Whittington, a true Texas"Guitar Hero" who spent fifteen years as lead guitarist for legendary bluesman John Mayall. After touring worldwide with Mayall and recording seven albums, Buddy struck out on his own in 2008. He has recorded three solo albums. Next up is an act that can only be described as a "show within a show", Ladies Sing the Blues. Featuring three of Colorado's own blues divas, Jessica Rogalski, Jill Watkins and Peaches Embry, Ladies Sing the Blues was presented to SRO audiences in the Pikes Peak Region twice by A Music Company Inc. Closing out the show is a Grammy Award nominated blues/soul artist with fifteen albums to her credit, Janava Magness. She was named the B.B. King Entertainer of the year in 2009 by The Blues Foundation; only the second woman to receive the award after Koko Taylor. The award was presented to her by B.B. King and Bonnie Raitt. Ms.Magness has earned seven Blues Music Awards and received 26 nominations. Blues on the Mesa will feature a variety of food trucks, vendors featuring handmade and homemade items, as well as bourbon, beer, wine and other alcohol for those 21 and older.
