The 3rd annual Chicago Women in the Blues Festival will be held June 7 at Reggies Rock Club, from 8- midnight. The event has become a new tradition in conjunction with the Chicago Blues Festival, and spotlights the top blues divas and musicians in Chicago.

This year's festival expands to include some very special guests, including one coming all the way from Seattle. The festival was created by Chicago keyboardist Joan Gand in 2011. She has assembled a bevy of blues bombshells, not only divas, but instrumentalists as well, with a mix of old and new blues traditions. The festival turns the spotlight on the often overlooked women of the blues, who have to work harder to be noticed in the male-dominated genre.

This year, the festival will feature some of the regulars, plus some exciting special guests:

Tickets are $10 in advance, and $15 at the door. The show will start at 8 pm and go until midnight.
