Celebrating the 42nd birthday of Lincoln’s perennial blues and roots hive, ZooFest 2015 closed down a chunk of 14th Street on Friday and Saturday for 10 national and local acts.
From Irma Thomas (“The Soul Queen of New Orleans”) to local favorites like Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers and AZP, the ZooFest lineup paid tribute to rock, funk and blues acts both storied and new.
See photos below from both days. HN contributor James Dean covered Friday, and Peter Barnes covered Saturday.
