Well folks, we're at year eight and there's no looking back. Our eight year will be the best lineup yet, with the best lineup of vendors, the best lineup of sponsors and the BEST BLUES FEST TICKET PRICES IN THE MARITIMES. Our focus this year os to showcase the rising stars of the East Coast blues and blues rock scene. We'll also have some Maritime legends and veterans to create a nice balance. We are trying to make this festival the least of the same-old-same-old and stand out a bit.
