Blues to be heard throughout Port Townsend

PORT TOWNSEND — The blues masters participating in the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival at Fort Worden will groove after-hours tonight, Aug. 5, and Saturday in downtown Port Angeles as part of Blues in the Clubs, organized by Centrum.

Performances will be from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Blues in the Clubs is a “movable feast of great music” in various downtown venues, with each venue operating on a first-come, first-seated basis, according to centrum.org.

“It is important to offer music downtown to spread the reach of this music and share in celebration of the faculty who have been teaching at the fort all week,” said Mary Hilts, Acoustic Blues Festival program manager, this week.

“This is an ongoing partnership with Centrum and downtown merchants to reach a wider audience.”

Entry to participating venues is granted to those wearing an official wristband purchased through Centrum.

The wristband is an all-access pass, allowing the bearer to move around throughout the evening to gain the full benefit of the clubs experience.

Venue hosts will help direct participants to available seating or standing room options.

Wristbands are $25 each per night and can be purchased by phone at 800-746-1982 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Tickets also are sold at the Centrum office, 223 Battery Way, Monday through Friday from noon until 4 p.m.
