On July 8 at 7 p.m., Austin’s beloved summer tradition Blues on the Green will be broadcast into Austin homes with a special Blues on the Screen event that will air on Austin’s Fox 7 and ACL Radio 97.1 FM.
The event will feature Austin legend, Ms. Lavelle White, rapper Kydd Jones, R&B artist Alesia Lani and rising rockers Sam Houston and Blk Odyssy.
The bill was curated by blues artist Jackie Venson.
Earlier this month, Venson went public with her concerns about diversity issues at the event which has had only one Black headliner in the past five years. This will be the first all-Black bill in the event’s 30-year history.
