Tomorrow’s Black Eyed Bluesfest has been moved indoors because of the threat of heavy rain.

The blues and barbecue festival, now in its 14th year, is usually held at the stage in Bushnell Park  just North of the state capitol. It will now be held at the Great Hall at Union Station, down the street at 1 Union Place.

Rich Badowski Blues Band, Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, Christine Ohlman and Rebel Montez, and Jeff Pitchell & Texas Flood play the concert, which runs 5 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Admission is still free at the Great Hall, with catering of delicious barbecue provided by Black Eyed Sally’s.

Fox CT Meteorologist Joe Furey says the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea are moving up the East Coast, and will bring gusty wind and heavy rainfall Friday night. Click here for the forecast.
