Fans say goodbye to beloved Blues Fest

December 22, 2011

For the past 18 years, people have been singing the Blues in Arnold. This week many folks are experiencing a case of “the blues” as the announcement was made that the annual South Loup River Blues & BBQ, more commonly known as Blues Fest, is calling it quits.
Blues Fest is the “baby” of KCNI/KBBN owner and general manager David J. Birnie, who organized the first event in 1993 as a station promotion. Through the station, Birnie had been involved with some fair shows and had experienced some successes with those, so he decided to take his love of Blues and see if he could make an event fly.
