For the 14th year, the Media Business Authority proudly presents The State Street Blues Stroll, an XPN WELCOMES Event.
Last year's Stroll was our second festival dedicated to "The Women of the Blues" ... our first was held in 2008. 2013's lineup featured Paul Rishell & Annie Raines (Media Theatre), Deb Callahan, Danielle Miraglia,  Eryn Shewell and BD Mylo and many other great acts.  

Stay tuned for this year's lineup!

Come to State Street in downtown Media, PA and experience a full round of The Blues as performed by talented artists at 20+ venues.  Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin and others pointed the way... with candor and bravado, they laid the groundwork for all "The Women of the Blues" who have walked in their footsteps.

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)
