B.B. King, known as the King of Blues, turns 83 Sept. 16. To mark the anniversary, the Polish Blues Association has declared Sept. 16 the Day of Blues, a celebration for all who "feel the blues" in Poland.

"Poland will breathe blues during the weeks preceding and following Sept. 16," the organizers say. "Blues concerts will be taking place across Poland, and radio stations will air blues, all to honor B.B. King and show that the blues is alive and well in Poland."

The Day of Blues celebrations will involve contributions from leading Polish blues performers, a number of music clubs, music magazines and websites. The celebrations will be marked by a five-CD release entitled An Anthology of Polish Blues.
