This event has now passed.
Despite the unexpected closing of CD Blues, the show will go on for the Beijing Blues Festival 2012, which is slated for the end of May.
Acts from around the world are set to have you snapping your fingers to soulful beats and wild guitar solos. The Blues Fest aims to support the growing community of blues lovers and players.
Judging by the line-up, we'd say they're doing alright.
