The Doobie Brothers and Jonny Lang will headline the 20th annual Santa Cruz Blues Festival May 26 and 27, 2012, with a host of other names still to be announced.
Over the past 20 years, the Festival has brought some of the biggest names in music to Santa Cruz County, including B.B. King, Joe Cocker, Al Green, Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles, Ben Harper and Los Lobos.
The Doobies have a strong local connection, having started their long career playing in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Jonny Lang skyrocketed to fame as a youngster with a platinum-selling album, Lie to Me, in 1997 and won a Grammy in 2006 for a gospel-influenced disc, Turn Around.
