Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival

Elvin Bishop at the Simi Valley Blues Festival a few years ago.

It’s Memorial Day weekend and I can’t think of a better way to spend it locally than attending the 24th Annual Simi Valley California Cajun & Blues Music Festival. I’m looking forward to some great performers (three stages this year) and mouthwatering Cajun food and BBQ! If you see me in Simi, say “Hi!” I’ll probably have a few of my blues books with me.

I’m looking forward to seeing Elvin Bishop again (he played the festival in 2011). I’ve been following his music since he was with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. His nickname with Butterfield was “Pigboy Crabshaw.” My favorite Butterfield LP is The Resurrection of Pigboy Crabshaw with its killer version of “One More Heartache.”

Crawdads, I’m a-comin’!
