Detroit locals love this neighborhood blues festival. The city, not so much.

Check out these gorgeous photos of John’s Carpet House by Doug Coombe. This place is not a house and they don’t sell carpets. It’s a longtime grassroots blues festival in Detroit. I loved reporting this story and collaborating with Doug.
