Party on the Patio: Tribute to Diamond Teeth Mary
August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Greater Huntington Park & Recreation District is proud to announce a great line-up of talented musicians for this year’s Diamond Teeth Mary Blues & Arts Festival. Friday, August 16, 2019, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. join your friends at the GHPRD as we welcome back this year’s headliner Noah Wotherspoon who will be joined by the Huntington Blues Society which is sure to feature an array of the area’s greatest Blues Artists!
Back by popular demand, Noah Wotherspoon, a Cincinnati native, has been mesmerizing audiences with his soulful guitar playing since he was a teenager. At 16, he headlined the Best Buy stage at the Chicago Blues Fest; soon after he recorded the album “Buzz Me” on APO Records that featured blues legend Hubert. In 2015, Wotherspoon received the Best Guitarist Award at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN and the band placed second in the Finals. Since the competition, they have been playing festivals and venues around the world. Noah has worked with and opened for a wide range of well-known artists including Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Lang, Chris Isaak, Boz Skaggs, and Leon Russell just to name a few and presently continues to electrify audiences around the world.
This FREE Blues Music Festival, featuring ice cold beer at great prices, soft drinks, and more is celebrating its milestone 10th year at Heritage Station in downtown Huntington. We honor the legendary “Queen of Blues” Mary McClain, who’s roots were planted right here in Huntington, WV. Her ashes were scattered at Heritage Station at her request in the very place where she hopped her first train in 1915 to follow her dream.
This event was made possible by the Greater Huntington Park & Recreation District and sponsored in part by iHeart Media, the Huntington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Wesbanco, Delta by Marriot, Mayo Tree Service and Coca-Cola.
