Peter Dammann's 2019 Waterfront Blues Festival preview / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Catfish Lou's #193

By TOM D'ANTONI // Your best Waterfront Blues Festival preview.  Artistic Director Peter Dammann tells you about alll of the great artists he's booked for this year's festival.

We sat down with Peter Dammann in May to get our annual lowdown from him on the Festival he's booked. He didn't disappoint. The Festival begins this week. OMN's photographers will be there to capture it for you!

So in early May it looked like this:

I know the flowers are just blooming and we’re getting some warmer days but this is also the time when we start to think about summer and in Portland that means outdoor music festival time.

I also know you have to plan ahead and that’s why once again, Peter Dammann, Artistic Director of the Waterfront Blues Festival is on the podcast to tell us about all of the artists he’s booked this year. And that link will take you to everything else you'd like to know about it.

It runs from Thursday, July 4 through Sunday, July 7.

Of course, he’s no stranger to Catfish Lou’s at 2460 NW 24th. He’s played here many times.

So what’s in store for the 2019 festival? Tickets are on sale right now so give a listen and let Peter give you a preview like no other.
