Peter Dammannn: Coffeeshop Conversation #143 The lowdown on the 2018 Waterfront Blues Festival

By TOM D'ANTONI // Waterfront Blues Festival Artistic Director Peter Dammann tells us about all of the bands he booked for this year's party at the river.

Welcome back to the Cupping room at World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th & Glisan for another in the endless series of OMN Coffeeshop Conversations.

Last year we started what has become a sensational tradition of having the folks who book major festivals come in and tell us about the people they booked. Did it with Don Lucoff and the Portland Jazz Festival, We did one last time with Nicolas Harris of the Soul’d Out Festival and today for the second year in a row, Peter Dammann, Artistic Director of the Waterfront Blues Festival is in the coffeeshop to tell us all about the 2018 festival starting on the Fourth of July.

There are some big internal changes this year, and of course, lots of great music. OMN will be in our booth in the Louisiana Pavilion, of course.

Let’s get started and welcome back ace-Blues guitarist Peter Dammann.
