Hambone Jam featured by Aykroyd

Published 9:36 am Wednesday, June 17, 2009

The Hambone Blues Jam has been chosen as one of the first 10 U.S. music festivals to be featured as part of the “Elwood’s Bluesmobile Guest List” contest.

In 2008, Dan Aykroyd (“Elwood Blues”) interviewed Josh Diaz, of the Hambone Board of Directors, for a program on his House of Blues Radio Hour to make the public aware of little known or up and coming blues festivals in the U.S.

Artie Flores from St. Paul was chosen as winner by Aykroyd to receive free passes to the festival.
