A whole weekend of music, food and outdoor fun at the beach, what more could you ask for? The 17th Annual Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival is held every year on Pleasure Island at the Fort Fisher Military Recreational Area in Kure Beach, NC. A very easy drive from our Carolina Beach, NC bed and breakfast.
Headlining this year is Leon Russell with a line up full of great musicians starting at 11am Saturday October 9th and finishing at 6pm on Sunday October 10th, 2010.
Leon Russell has played with artists as varied as Jerry Lee Lewis, George Harrison, Delaney Bramlett, Ringo Starr, Elton John, Eric Clapton, The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Willie Nelson, Badfinger, Tijuana Brass, Frank Sinatra, The Band, Glen Campbell, and The Rolling Stones. Leon’s solo career involves the genres of rock and roll, blues, and gospel music.
Please check the Pleasure Island events page for a list of performers for the day’s schedule.
We are excited for our guests who will be attending this event. The event is sure to please the rocker at heart.
I found some videos to wet everyone’s appetites. I love this song.
