San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair


The Hayward-Russell City Blues Festival celebrates the rich history, musical and cultural art form found in Russell City and Hayward during the post-war years from the 1940s through the 1960s. Located outside Oakland, CA, the area was once known for its dirt-floored clubs, bootleg electricity, and steady stream of Delta Blues-style musicians. Eventually the traditional sound of the harmonica was replaced with horns and West Coast Blues was born.

The Bay Area Blues Society is pleased to bring those sounds back through the Hayward-Russell City Blues Festival. The 2010 festival is taking place on July 10th & 11th and will focus on Texas-style Blues. About 120 artists play at the event and they had an over 3,000 in attendance at the 2009 event.
