April Showers bring… MORE tickets in May!

April is winding down quickly. Here in Maine it has been a windy spring mixed with showers and just a few days that have given us a sneak peek of the summer that lies ahead.

As most of you know, in an attempt to keep our numbers manageable while we approach the festival opening day, we have been releasing ticket availability in blocks. Uncertainty is still in play here, but looking better everyday! We are still easing in to our numbers as we grow closer to the date.

There may come a time when we determine that we are at what we feel is a safe and manageable capacity. There may also come a time when we announce that we have opened completely. We simply don’t know for sure yet. Either way, we feel that the safest option is to take it slow, and in stages. In this way, we hope to set ourselves, and all of you, up for a safe and successful festival. Because, after all, that is the most important part. The health and safety of everyone in our community is at the forefront of our minds, and our plans. We are keeping a close eye on statistics and trends, and the guidance of our health and safety officials. As we navigate these truly uncharted waters, we want to assure you that we are taking this job very seriously.

That said, as expected, we are ready to move ahead and open the next block of tickets starting officially on May 1, but we are offering you early access TODAY! We are still limiting sales at this time to 3 and 4 day tickets. 2 day and single day tickets availability will be determined later in the summer.

While the festival draws nearer, we ask everyone to be safe, and support each other in these tough times.

Support your fellow Bluegrassers! Together we can do this! Together we can persevere. Smiling around a campfire, playing the music of our hearts, a family again.

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.
