Join us for a morning of lively Bluegrass music and learn more about the annual Laurel Highlands Bluegrass Festival next weekend in Waterford.
JUNE 21-22, 2013
ROUTE 271, WATERFORD, JUST
5 MILES NORTH OF LIGONIER, PA
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
It’ll be hard to top last year’s festival (record attendance, perfect weather, and top-notch music), but we aim to do it. We’re getting the bands lined up, tweaking the food menu, scheduling the music workshops and sound company, and just generally gearing up for another great year. Sure hope you can join us!
As always, both the Friday evening and Saturday lineups will be filled with top-notch national, regional and local bluegrass performers. GREAT music will be provided by:
+ Special Consensus - Grammy nominated, chart-toppers from Chicago!
+ The Rarely Herd - Highly entertaining, award-winning band returns!
+ Gooseneck Rockers - New powerhouse trio of award winners!
+ Bluegrass Mountaineers - Fine traditional Ohio family band returns!
+ Remington Ryde - Popular Pa. band was a hit here two years ago!
+ Lonesome Highway - Super solid band from West Virginia!
+ Blue Shades - Always great to hear these local favorites!
+ Border Ride – Entertaining band from Pa. and Ohio debuts!
Our ol’ buddy John Trout from WYEP-FM’s “Traditional Ties” show and Ligonier’s Jeff Bell will once again serve as emcees, both keeping the show on schedule and adding that “certain something” to the festivities. (Whatever that may be.) First class sound will be provided by Don, Ginger, and Steve of Soaring Eagle Productions, Bedford, PA. (They get tons of compliments on the great sound from both the fans and performers.)
BIG THANKS FROM THE FIREMEN!
Just a reminder… the festival benefits the Ligonier Township Volunteer Fire Department, Station #44. Their hard work, coupled with your support for them and the music, makes this a “win-win” for everybody. They deeply appreciate your attendance and your spreading the word about the festival.
The goal all along has been to make this an affordable, wholesome, family festival that features the best in bluegrass music. Please explore the rest of this Web site for more info, schedules, directions, etc., and check back for the latest updates. Also, please support our sponsors who help make this possible.
