CLEARWATER - The Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival will be presented Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 18 and 19, at Coachman Park, 301 Drew St., Clearwater.

Coachman Park is located just behind the city’s main library on the waterfront overlooking Clearwater Harbor.

Since its inception, this annual festival has become one of Clearwater’s most beloved signature events, appealing to thousands of residents and seasonal visitors. The annual event may not have as long and storied a history as the city’s other signature music event - the Clearwater Jazz Holiday - but it has become a fixture in the Tampa Bay area as it continues to attract top blues artists. The very first Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival was presented in February 2007. That year’s lineup featured headliners Johnny Winter and Eric Sardinas.
