One of Austin's great music traditions, Blues on the Green, KGSR's hugely popular and free Austin summer music series, has been going strong since 1991.
The outdoor concert series runs every other Wednesday (see 2011 Blues on the Green schedule below) and features some of the very best Blues talent in Austin and the surrounding region. Past performers have included Jimmie Vaughan, Doyle Bramhall, Ruthie Foster, Marcia Ball, Papa Mali, Asleep at the Wheel, Raul Malo, W.C. Clark, Gary Clark Jr., Carolyn Wonderland, and Sonny Landreth.
Zilker Park is now home to the series, although the concerts have had different homes over the years. I believe the series first began over in the Arboretum area, and the 2009 season was held at Waterloo Park while the grounds at Zilker were getting prepped for the 2009 ACL Festival.
