ROGERS PARK — Tunes from some of the most influential blues musicians will be heard lakeside Friday during a free concert in the park. 

"Chicago Bound: The Great Migration of the Blues" showcase explores the artists who moved from the South all the way north to Chicago's neighborhoods and brought with them a sound that would come to define the city's music legacy. 

Performances will be inspired by music from Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, "Big Bill" Broonzy, Memphis Minnie, Koko Taylor, Richard Jones, Willie Dixon, Lillian Green and more.

The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the stage near the lakefront between Lunt and Morse avenues at Loyola Park.
