Our festival was a CD Release Celebration for their brand new release BROTHERHOOD which was called "Timeless, deeply soulful and uplifting gospel-drenched blues, street corner doo-wop, ballads, R&B, country and funk," by the NEW YORK TIMES. Their 2010 release Feed My Soul was hailed as "Glorious, rootsy R&B, gospel, blues and country. Full of soul and surprises." by USA TODAY. 2014 was also Media Arts Council's 100th 2nd Saturday!! Come to State Street in downtown Media, PA in 2015 and experience a full round of The Blues as performed by talented artists at 20+ venues. We have a full evening of music, so make dinner reservations before the show! "State Street's all right, and the lights shine nice and bright." -- Bessemer Blues - Ma Rainey (1927)
