Ride the ABS Blues Bus
The ABS has set up a Blues Bus committee headed by Crystal Moss, and we are going to set up a bus trip to the May 6 Blind Willie McTell Festival.  To get this started we need to know if you would be interested in riding on the bus, we anticipate that the cost would be @ $65 and would include tickets for the Festival.  It is about a 2 hour ride to the Festival site from Atlanta.  Please let us know if you would be interested in riding the Blues Bus with us by emailing us at theatlantabluessociety@gmail.com.  We can't do this without your support and participation so please let us know if you would like to ride and also if you like to help Crystal out .
