The Ben Racine Band, seen playing here on “Rhythm and Blues Stage” outside the Granada Theatre, was one of over 40 different musical acts performing in Sherbrooke over the weekend for the annual SherBlues & Folk music festival. Crowds showed up, despite a weekend heatwave, to enjoy both the free outdoor concerts and a variety of ticketed events. The downtown festival regularly attracts artists from near and far to highlight both the traditional and the up-and-coming in the worlds of the Blues and Folk musical genres, as well as bits and pieces of other musical styles. Although the majority of festival programming ended yesterday, two concerts associated with the event are set to take place next weekend; Five Alarm Funk at the Granada on July 10, and Fantastic Negrito at the same location the following day.
