The year 2017 is almost coming to a close. For some, the year flew by like a bolt of lightning, for others, it was as slow as a turtle trying to walk through maple syrup. Either way, it was a pretty solid year for great blues albums and there is still a chance to catch some of your favorite artists live in concert, or to discover your favorite blues artist in 2018.

New Years Eve is always a time for crazy parties and to celebrate a (hopefully) great and prosperous year to come. Why not party with some great live blues music in the background? That is where we came in! Unfortunately, Joe Bonamassa will be taking a much deserved break that night, but we have outlined other sensational blues musicians to check out on the last day of 2017!

Hope this helps
