In between the stage acts we will feature four different acts in the pavilion. The youth band Brutal Wedgie will bring their blues infused rocking sound out for us to enjoy at the first break, then we have Joe Filisko’s harmonica workshop with free harps to kids 10 and under at the next break. Paul Kaye will have a guitar workshop at the third break and the last break features Delta blues man Dan Phelps and Hardtimes Cigar Box Guitars. Dan won our local blues challenge and represented us in Memphis in February at the International Blues Challenge.

The fest features over 30 types of beer and wines for sale at only $4 each. Pop and water will be available for only a dollar. A nice assortment of foods including barbecue, Mexican food, Italian beef and sausage, burgers, pork chops, brats, gelato and shaved ice, and all sorts of other food and snack will be for sale.
