The Chicago Blues Festival is a free event held every June showcasing the top blues musicians in the industry. The festival started in 1984 to honor renowned blues musician Mckinley Morganfield who passed the year before. He was considered the “father of Chicago blues". WXRT radio station is one of the sponsors for the event and each year they design their own merchandise for the festival. For the 2013 festival, they created the image on this button. It depicts an eagle which is the nations emblem, but if looked at closely, it also doubles as a guitar.
