NORTH CENTER — Neighbors will be able to enjoy free blues and jazz performances Saturday near Delmark Records’ North Center home.

Delmark CEO and President Julia A. Miller conceived the event — now in its second year — as a street festival in the spirit of old Maxwell Street, where electric blues was invented.

The event will feature food, live painting and vendors selling merchandise. For more information, visit Delmark’s website.
