Blistered Fingers — Maine Bluegrass Festival

The following is from Blistered Fingers recent email blast:
Howdy All,

Just a reminder that the $54 per person June Blistered Fingers festival ticket special will be ending this Sunday on February 14, 2021! You can order your 2021 festival tickets on our website or you can mail a check along with a self-addressed envelope post office dated no later than February 14, 2021. Refunds will be issued for your purchased Blistered Fingers advance tickets if a festival is cancelled.

We are hoping and doing our best to have the festivals, but there are many obstacles that will have to be crossed between now and then. Please make sure to check our website and sign up to be on our mailing list so you do not miss any festival status announcements. Also, please make sure to let all your friends know and remind them if they have email to sign up on our email list on our web site so we may keep them informed. We will no longer be mailing newsletters or flyers due to the extensive cost which could help make the difference of having the festivals or not. We will be sending out our newsletters from now on by email only. Flyers may be downloaded and printed from our website.

It is sad to say that through many conversations and data research it looks like future attendance for musical festivals and events could drop as much as 30%-40% after we start recovering from this pandemic. Everyone’s safety is our number one concern. We can’t wait to see you when you feel comfortable at our next festival!

In closing, you all warm our hearts with all of your thoughtfulness. We love and appreciate each and every one of you. We look forward to seeing you this upcoming festival season.

“Don’t just hear about it, come experience it”!
Stay Safe, Keep smiling and your toes tapping!
Love, Greg & Sandy

Blizzard Bob

Blizzard Bob has been a mainstay of Maine bluegrass for many years. I can remember listening to his show on WMPG back in the late 90s, before I hardly played at all. I would tape the program, then just about wear out the tape listening to it for the following week. Occasionally I would get a chance to play the show at work (when I was manning the radio). I’d be willing to bet there are many folks out there that got their start listening to Bob. Thanks, Bob.
