Petit-Rocher summer blues festival announces local, national, and international entertainment lineup

Blues fans in the Chaleur region are sure get their fix for the music they love this summer.

Petit-Rocher's annual Blues d'la Baie has announced Juno award winner Steve Hill and Dawn Tyler Watson will kick off this year's edition of the festival.

Other acts include Breen LeBoeuf & Martin Deschamps, Nanette Workman, the Jireh Gospel Choir and the region's very own The John Boulay Blues Quartet.

Organizers say they hope the festival brings more traffic to local merchants by attracting tourists from neighbouring regions and communities.

The festival runs July 26th to 29th.
