This year’s Tel Aviv Blues Festival will have an especially local flavor to it, with homegrown talent taking over 20 venues in the city from November 22-25.

Berlin-based, Arkansas-bred E.B. Davis will be the only import, performing in a free show at Mike’s Place in Tel Aviv with local favorites SOBO.
