Westport gets the blues, big time, over Labor Day weekend. That’s when the 12th annual Blues & Views Festival returns to the Levitt Pavilion, located on the banks of the Saugatuck River, in downtown Westport. Concert days are Saturday, Aug. 31, and Sunday Sept. 1, and this year’s lineup features nationally touring headliners like Lawrence, the Neville Jacobs Band, with Ivan Neville and Chris Jacobs, The Main Squeeze, Flow Tribe, the High & Mighty Brass Band, Southern Avenue, The Commonheart, Kat Wright, The National Reserve, Jake Kulak and the Lowdown, plus festival favorites Anders Osborne and School of Rock.
The Jesup Jam, on the grounds of the Westport Library parking lot, has additional local music offerings, plus activities for the youngsters, like “bouncy” amusements, arts and crafts and face painting, a specialty food marketplace and a food court with wood-fired, grilled and roasted food, handcrafted beer, premium liquor, wine and other refreshments.
