Bull Durham Blues Festival 

When: Fri., Sept. 9, 7 p.m. and Sat., Sept. 10, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: $35
The old bull is on his knees—you’ve got to wonder what the people behind the Bull Durham Blues Festival are thinking. From a thirty-year-long freewheeling outdoor experience that featured top headliners in blues and R&B, the festival has been knocked down to an indoor venue with so-so headliners and a few local and regional acts added for flavor. The Triangle Blues Society competition winner is no longer featured on the bill, and the prices are pretty high—a single-day pass runs $35, with a full weekend costing $60. The two bright spots are seventy-six-year-old Beverly “Guitar” Watkins’s behind-the-head guitar tricks and the high-octane blues of Winston-Salem’s Luxuriant Sedans. —Grant Britt
