Local Bands to Light Up Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival, 1/28

Now in its fourth year, the Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival is an established entity in the windy city, bringing national acts to the Congress Theater and other local venues for a celebration of American roots music.

On Saturday, Jan. 28, the Congress will host headliners The Drive-By Truckers and Dawes, along with support courtesy of some of the best folk, alt-country and blues rock bands in Chicago.

Joining DBT and Dawes on the main stage will be folk troubadour Joe Pug, psych/blues outfit Bailiff and slick country rockers Van Ghost.

Side stage and balcony performers include the raucous Shams Band, soul-rock rebels Great Divide (pictured), Go Long Mule and the wonderful Paper Thick Walls.
