SARASOTA - A Sarasota tradition for the last two decades will not take place this year.
According to the website of the Sarasota Blues Festival, the event has been cancelled for this year.
The festival changed owners recently, and they have decided to take the year off.
In a statement on the website, they say they appreciate the continued support and look forward to 2014.
The Sarasota Blues Fest was started in 1991 by the Sarasota Blues Society.
**UPDATE** Hours after this announcement, another promoter announced a replacement festival called the Florida Music and Blues Festival.
