At their annual awards ceremony in November, The Inland Empire Blues Society gave the honor of Best Blues Festival to The Coeur d'Alene Blues Festival. It won over the Winthrop Blues Festival, as well as the very popular outdoor Rock Cut Blues Festival.
This is the third year in a row that The Coeur d'Alene Blues Festival has won this award, which means it is a Hall Of Fame winner. (Hall of Fame winners are not eligible to win the same award for another three years.)
2018 will mark the ninth year of the festival and plans are already under way for this fun event held at The Coeur d’Alene Resort. Fans should save the date forMarch 23-25. The Festival has already confirmed headliners Marcia Ball, five-time Grammy nominee from Texas, and Anson Funderburgh, from Nashville. It will feature Rose City Kings from Portland, Rafael Tranquilino Band from Seattle, and The Andy T Band featuring Alabama Mike.
Exciting newcomer Shoot Jake, a rocking young trio from Kennewick, Wash., will play the Friday night Blues Cruise, along with Inland Northwest favorite The Sidemen. There will be some area favorites returning and a V.I.P. meet and greet in the Hagadone penthouse suite.
Tickets for the 2018 festival will go on sale Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017. Saturday festival tickets are just $39. Room packages that include all-access passes will also be available.
