The 2010 Bear Creek Blues Festival attracted a good crowd, great weather and "awesome" music, according to organizer Jill Murray. The opening act was a local group, Riverbend Band, and the headliner was Chicago bluesman Ronnie Baker Brooks. Between them, the audience saw a mix of styles, from the sizzling guitar work of Albert Castiglia; funky Salty Dawg's Cold Sweat, starring former Saline Countian Gary Coble; Steve Smith & the Sneakers; and the difficult-to-categorize harp & digeridoo virtuosity of Harper.
