By | Uncategorised | No Comments

”Twas the week before Christmas,

And all through the land

Many a blues fan wondered;

Where are the hot bands?
Meantime Edmonton Blues Fest Crews

Were spreading the news

That a deal was cookin’

‘Cuz we’re done with the bookin’
Fans lept to their keyboards

In search of details

Looking hither and thither

They said “let’s not dither”;
Tickets for friends and family

Were quickly snapped up;

As prices would rise

With the New Year’s sun up…
Edmonton’s Blues Fest was the place to be,

With Albert and Kim; Kenny and Colin,

The fest wold be bluesin’

And all would be ballin’;
Get yours today,

Make someone’s day;

Be there or be square,

And make sure that your yule is most definitely cool!
