Female singers take stage at Roots n’ Blues

leave a comment »

Two female singers performed at 1 p.m. Saturday during the Roots n’ Blues n’ BBQ festival.

Ana Popovic, a Serbian-American singer-guitarist with a passion for the blues, played some jazzy guitar riffs at the Mediacom stage in Peace Park.

Popovic drew quite a crowd.  From older couples dancing to the swingy tunes or young families with kids in tow, concertgoers enjoyed her smooth, laid-back style.

Nearby, on the MPIX stage at 7th and Locust, Heather Myles was wooing listeners with her feel-good country style.  Myles, known for her song “Cars”, had quite a few people dancing around 7th Street.

The Roots ‘N Blues ‘n BBQ Festival will continue tonight with artists such as Booker T. performing at 7 p.m. and the Blind Boys of Alabama at 9 p.m.
