Four years ago a group of community leaders and musicians decided that a festival featuring a classic American art form - the blues - could draw thousands of people to Hagerstown, not only to showcase many performers, but also to show off the area at the same time. By any measure, the festival that closed this past Sunday has exceeded everyone's expectations. An estimated 20,000 fans, up 6,000 from last year, saw performances that ranged from traditional acoustic guitar blues to horn-tooting, big-band-style blues.
