BLUES FESTIVAL ENCORE: Peter Dammann on nearly all of the 2023 Waterfront Blues Festival Lineup. / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music

By TOM D'ANTONI // Waterfront Blues Festival Artistic Director returns for his annual visit to tell us all about who's playing and why.

2023 Waterfront Blues Festival is almost here. It runs from Friday, July 1 to Tuesday, July 4.

In April it was time for OMN’s annual early-bird preview from the lips of festival Artistic Director and ace guitarist Peter Dammann.

The festival is back at full strength after weathering covid. The same old beautiful grass-covered park alongside the Willamette July firsr to fourth.

There will be some old favorites, others returning from long absences, newcomers we’ve heard about and some we will discover, that’s one of the delights of the festival.

The cruises, the food, the sun and the breezes all await as does the headliner, Buddy Guy who is advertising this appearance as his “Damn Right Farewell Tour.”

Welcome back Peter Dammann.
