Habitat fundraiser is set for Saturday
WINCHESTER -- The Blues House Festival celebrates its 10th year in a new location on Saturday.
The popular event for the past two years has served as the biggest fundraiser for the Winchester-Frederick County chapter of the Habitat for Humanity. This year, Blues House will be held at Winchester Eagles Club Aerie 824, 700 Baker Lane.
"It has a long-standing tradition of just great blues music, brings out a great crowd," said Cheryl Connolly, executive director of the local Habitat chapter, adding that this year's location is bigger than in the past.
This year's lineup features singer-guitarist Tinsley Ellis as the headliner, along with The Legendary JC's, Elisa Girlando & the Out of Truth Band, and the Texas Chainsaw Horns. Terry Oates & the Mud Cats, from Winchester, open the festival.
The Blues House partners with organizations to co-host the event and to provide volunteer support, according to the Web site www.winchesterblueshouse.com. The organizations then benefit from donations made from Blues House net proceeds. This is the second year Habitat has served as the benefactor.
The event will be held in the outdoor pavilion from noon to 7 p.m. Gates open at 11 a.m. Parking is available at the club and in the Apple Valley Market Place.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate the day of the event. Card-carrying members of the Eagles clubs may enter for free. Visit www.winchesterblueshouse.com for event and ticket information.
