international blues acts. Some of this year’s performers include the Devon

the Cornlickers and Bobby Kyle. Check out the fest’s website for a full listing

The
fest takes place in the 350-acre Briggs family farm in Nescopeck, PA, filling
two evenings with a great lineup of music. So bring your coolers (the event is BYOB) and lawn chairs and get set for a good time.

 
And don’t forget, where there’s great blues, you’re going to
find some mighty fine barbecue too. This year, in addition to a special
Mississippi Delta Blues menu of slow-cooked meats, blues superstar Lonnie
Shields will personally be slow-cooking ribs, pulled pork, sausage and chicken.
Word has it, his foods is as smokin’ as his Southern-infused music.  Fans will be happy to know Briggs Farm will
also be serving their farm-fresh roasted sweet corn, a perennial favorite with
the crowds.
 
If you’d like to see more of the farm while you’re there, hop
on the Blues Hay Ride to get a tractor and wagon tour of the place.
