Guitarist Elvin Bishop, who helped give white kids the blues in the 1960s, will be one of the headliners at the Black Swamp Arts Festival in September.
The festival kicks off in downtown Bowling Green with music Sept. 6 and continues through Sept. 8. The art show and children's activities run Sept. 7 and 8.
Bishop, a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, takes the stage Sept. 7. Together they helped launch the blues rock movement.
But having a hit and a starry past is not enough to get someone booked at the festival, said Kelly Wicks, who chairs the performance committee. "Not only is he a legendary singer-songwriter, but he continues to produce new and fresh music."
Bishop also continues to front a strong band, Wicks added.
The festival will host a number of new and familiar faces this year.
The Friday show will bring back the Bright Light Social Hour for a 10 p.m. set. The band of young Austin-based rockers were booked to perform in the same slot last year, but got rained out. They did play an after-hour set at Howard's Club H.
