“A Beacon of East Coast Blues”
A family-friendly celebration of East Coast blues and blues rock. We’re happy to announce that a portion of ticket sales this year will be going to Laing House. So not only are you enjoying a great weekend, but you’re supporting a great cause. The focus this year is to showcase the best of the best up-and-coming Maritime acts, with a few legends and veterans in the mix to balance things out. With on-site camping, lots of food and craft vendors, an Open Mic on Friday and Saturday and a special addition of a “Late Night Open Jam”, we are certain this will be our best year yet. If you’re in the mood for getting a dose of the future of East Coast blues… THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU! Multiple award-winning acts to make us East Coasters proud. Round up your crew, grab your tickets, reserve your campsites and get ready for some “summertime blues”.
