Keokuk's 29th Annual Rollin' on the River Bluesfest
August 18th and 19th 2017


While the 28th Rollin on the River is past, it won’t soon be forgotten as another great two nights of the Blues.  The rain held off Friday till the last note by William Elliott Whitmore rang out, this following the impressive sound of Serious Business and the irrepressible Lizzy Neal Band.  Saturday, as all you fans know turned out beautifully, with the Kids Workshops, games and even an Egg Hunt in the park during the afternoon.  Evening brought perfect weather and along with the musical highlights was the appearance of the American Queen Riverboat.  The boat was drifting by just as Hurricane Ruth began belting out her own brand of energetic Blues.  Not only were we all ecstatic to see this magnificent ship, the guests aboard were just as happy to see us as they swayed and danced on deck as they drifted slowly by.  Appropriately ending this perfect evening, of course, was the iconic Mud Morganfield with his band including the master of the harmonica, Studebaker John, who held us spellbound till the end.

Thank you all!! Stay tuned and join us next year, August 18 & 19, 2017, for the 29th Rollin’ on the River!!!
