Bluesmore Event Retired After 20 Years
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- After a 20 year run, it appears that the summer Bluesmore event is no longer. The jazz festival on the lawn at Brucemore Mansion in Cedar Rapids began in 1993.
A spokesperson for Brucemore says staff reviewed all their events each year and determined it was time to end this particular event.
The music concert was put on in partnership with the Linn County Blues Society. Brucemore say they hope the group can find another venue for the annual event.
Frank Wilson, the President of the Linn County Blues Society, says they were hoping to find a new venue for the August event but simply ran out of time. So they are redoubling their efforts to bring it back next year at a new location.
