Mojo Collins - Singer, guitarist and songwriter Mojo Collins brings a lifetime of musical
adventures to life during every performance. Making his return to the Cape Fear Blues Festival, Mojo will
take you back to the days of Haight Ashbury and Fillmore West, and regale you with the Carolina Blues
and tales from the Outer Banks.
And on the dock...

No event has greater appeal during the Cape Fear Blues Festival than the Cape Fear Blues
Cruise on the Henrietta III riverboat. This excursion is the largest inland cruise of its kind in
the Carolinas, combining multiple Blues acts, catered regional fare, and 3 decks of nautical
elegance and comfort aboard a modern cruising vessel. Always a sold-out affair, this event
presents talented performers in a unique setting that reflects the rich history of the Blues,
and the stately riverfront of downtown Wilmington, North Carolina.
