I came back from Hell yesterday. I go to Hell rather often, that is, usually I just pass through, because Hell is such a small place. It is nothing there except for a few houses and a railway station. But once a year, about the first weekend in September, people from all over go to Hell, for the Blues in Hell festival. It is a big festival, with a lot of well known blues artists. For some reason many international musicians like the idea of playing here, to have been to Hell.
This year the The Original Blues Brothers was the big attractions. John Belushi is dead and Dan Aykroyd was not a blues brother in Hell. Of the original musicians there were only two left, Steve Cropper and Lou Marini, but with Bobby Harden and Johnny Rosch as lead singers, it was some party.
Since this festival is at a very small railway station everything is in tents. The biggest one, The Magic Mirror, is decorated in the style of art nouveau and provides a very special atmosphere.
Davina Sowers and her band, The Vagabonds were among the artists in another tent, The Acoustic Station. It was also a very good concert.
