ST. LOUIS – Blues at the Arch is returning to downtown St. Louis!

The Gateway Arch Foundation and the National Blues Museum are bringing renowned blues artists to the Arch grounds for the third year in a row.

Blues at the Arch is a four-week series that takes place Friday evenings in August. The first event will be Friday, August 3 at Gateway Arch National Park, by the Eads Bridge. Concerts will also take place on August 10, 17 and 24.

All events are free and will take place from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

"Blues is essential to the soul of St. Louis. And we also have a great history about blues music right here on the national park's grounds at the Gateway Arch National Park. The land itself was home to the old rock house which was at one time a blues venue," said Samantha Fisher of the Gateway Arch Park Foundation. 
 
The exciting lineup for Blues at the Arch includes well-known, established local and national acts:
•    August 3 –   Little Dylan and Zac Harmon
•    August 10 – Keesha Pratt and Marquise Knox
•    August 17 – Skeet Rodgers and the Inner City Blues Band and Dexter Allen
•    August 24 – Jeremiah Johnson and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram
