Bernard Allison performs at the 13th Annual Pittsburgh Blues Festival, which was held July 20-22 at Hartwood Acres. The proceeds benefited the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Nationally known artists Delbert McClinton and Frank Marino were featured, along with local favorites like the Billy Price Band, the Pittsburgh Blues All-Stars and Jill West. Guy Davis, Peter Karp and many others performed. With more than 285,000 people living below the federal poverty level in southwestern Pennsylvania, the food bank serves 120,000 people, including 37,000 children.
