My KUTX: Austin Blues Festival 2024

Austin Blues Festival 2024

My KUTX // April 6, 2024

On the weekend of April 27th and 28th, the Austin Blues Festival returns to the Moody Amphitheater. Like last year’s iteration, the festival–run by the folks behind Antone’s–pays tribute to the original blues roots of its namesake while expanding its boundaries. Performers include blues legends Buddy Guy and Jimmie Vaughan alongside Brittany Howard’s psychedelic soul, Cuban funk exports Cimafunk, jazz genius Robert Glasper, a second-line brass band, and a whole lot more.

This week on My KUTX, Zach Ernst, Haley Caradine, Will Bridges, and Salihah Saadiq return as our guest DJs. They play an hour of festival highlights, and more info can be found here. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, April 6th at 6 p.m. or listen anytime right here.
