The 3rd annual River Valley Blues Festival, returning to Salvage Station on the banks of the French Broad River. This year TWO days of music, food, brews, vendors and more. Artists scheduled to appear include local favorites The Dirty Badgers, The Zuzu Welsh Band, The Paper Crowns, Ashley Heath, Roots & Dore, Virginia and The Slims, and Moses Jones, and two very special national headlining acts - Saturday night, Grammy-nominated Janiva Magness, and Sunday evening, the 2010 International Blues Challenge winner Grady Champion.

Our emcee again this year will be AshevilleFM's own Blueshound, host of the weekly blues show Soul Of The Blues, airing every Friday night from 7PM until 9PM.
