As afternoon approached, the already sweltering temperature increased, as did the number of flushed fans foregoing shade to watch famous blues artists perform.

The Western Maryland Blues Fest started 12 years ago with one stage, four bands and a $35,000 budget, said Julie Donat, Blues Fest co-chairwoman. Since then, the annual festival has more than quadrupled in size, she said. Eighteen bands will have performed on two stages when the four-day event ends today. On Saturday night, festival headliner Joe Bonamassa brought the crowd to its feet. His fans agreed that Bonamassa is the best guitarist, and certainly the best blues guitarist, in the world.
