Singing the Blues in Frederiksted

The Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise made its annual stop in St Croix yesterday.
The town of Frederiksted enjoyed a day of blues with pub crawls, blues in the schools, a street festival and a concert at the pier.

I missed some of the acts, but got there in time for sunset.
Shemekia Copeland. The girl can belt them out! 
The mocko jumbies strolled through the crowd.
The cruise ship looked oh so pretty all lit up.
The Lowrider Band sang "Low Rider" and "Why Can’t We Be Friends?" from their War days.
It was a happy crowd and when the rain came, the dancing just couldn’t be stopped.
