The411 with Sherlene Shanklin:  This weekend you will have an opportunity to enjoy some good barbecue and some great blues music.  The Blues & Barbecue Festival returns to the Louisville Water Tower. Tonight, blues fans will get a special treat.  Claudette King, daughter of Blues legend B.B. King will perform.  The three-day festival will have alot of good bands like The Stray Cat Blues Band, Mr. Jimmy and The Predators to name a few.  Organizers say the 16th annual festival will give you a mixture of unique sounds and intoxicating tastes of the South's finest blues and barbecue.
