Blues at the Logan Center

Chicago’s South Side was once the burgeoning mecca of the Chicago Blues. While the immortal influence of Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Willie Dixon thrive around the world, the presence of this powerful African American folk music has all but dissipated on the South Side. The Logan Center has taken giant strides to bring this cultural legacy to the forefront of South Side culture by featuring the Chicago Blues in 3 significant events: 1) BluesFest; 2) School Music Programs; and 3) a Monthly Blues series in Café Logan.


Many of the events during the Logan Center Bluesfest are free.

Tickets for all events will be available in early Fall 2018. To stay in-the-know, sign-up to receive Bluesfest news.
