Germantown Schnitzelburg Blues Festival

In the last blog, we talked about Louisville and its affinity for great music, and this week’s event is another great example of that. Instead of Rock n’ Roll, this time we are singing the blues.

The eighth Germantown Schnitzelburg Blues Festival is a fantastic two-day event starting in the evening and featuring several local blues musicians including Laurie Jane and the 45’s and the Walnut Street Blues Band. The event is hosted by the Kentucky Blues Society and the always delicious Check’s Café.

The event is completely free and each day features three separate blues groups. Additionally, a portion of proceeds from other sales will go to the Home of the Innocents.
