September 15

The 9th Annual Greenbelt Blues Festival took place at Roosevelt Center on a perfect September Saturday afternoon. The festival was sponsored by Friends of the New Deal Café Arts and featured ten bands playing from 1 to 11 p.m., first outside and then inside the café after dark.

T-shirts for the 9th Annual Greenbelt Blues Festival are $15 each.

At the festival’s information table are Chris and Barbara Logan. Chris Logan is the treasurer of Friends of New Deal Café Arts (FONDCA) which sponsors two annual all-day music festivals at Roosevelt Center: Crazy Quilt Music Festival in the spring and Greenbelt Blues Festival in the fall.

On the back of the t-shirt are the names of the bands that play today.
