Thursday blues band has a wide following

NORWICH – Attendance at the free Chenango Bluesfest shows in West Side Park this summer has pleased organizers, with music lovers from Binghamton, Syracuse and throughout Chenango County attending.



“I just got a call from someone in Endwell who asked if Smokin Joe Kubek was really playing for free in our park,” said Eric Larsen, Bluesfest president. “He said he would be bringing a whole bunch of people tomorrow night.”
