Blues star and singer Devon Allman will be one of the headliners at the annual Prairie Dog Blues Fest to be held Friday and Saturday, July 31 and Aug. 1.
Allman, originally from St. Louis, Mo. will headline July 31, on St. Feriole Island. His mix of blues, rock and soul music has captured many listeners’ ears. Allman recently released his third solo album, “Ragged and Dirty.”
A world-traveled singer, Allman will take time out of his Ragged and Dirty Tour to perform on the Blues Fest stage at 11 p.m. He graced the stage five years ago. Although he doesn’t remember the event vividly, he said he did have a good time in little Prairie du Chien.
Performing since he was 17 years old, Allman enjoys writing and performing his music for crowds.
“The connection with the audience and that energy exchange is worth the travel and wait,” Allman said.
