Blues skies greeted "A Celebration of the Blues: A Black History Month Tribute to Blues Legends," which was held earlier this month on the grounds of the Cone Park Branch Library.

Taking to the stage to perform hits by famous blues legends were local musicians, along with Alachua County Library District employees, including Cone Park library specialist Nathaniel Courtney, who sang.

Songs by BB King, Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughn and others were performed.

Also performing were Tammi and Darius McDaniel, the daughter and grandson of Bo Diddley.
