Non-perishable food donations for the Coventry food pantry are being collected The lineup for this year's event includes the following great performers: Duke Robillard Guitarist. Bandleader. Songwriter. Singer. Producer. Session musician. And a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its forms and permutations. And every one of those names has shared recording studio space or stage time with a man who is a legend in the blues community. Mikey Junior For a musical style that has historically placed so much weight on lineage, the passing of more and more of the old masters poses a dire question: What is the future of the blues and who will lead the charge? Well, for blues fans in the Northeast United States, that question is routinely answered every night Mikey Junior hits the stage. Vanessa Collier Vanessa is one of the fastest rising young artists to come out of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. She is a multi-talented vocalist, saxophonist, and songwriter. In The Beer Tent : The Georgie Bonds Trio Prior to the start of the main stage show and during the breaks between bands, attendees will be treated to the great acoustic Blues sounds of the Georgie Bonds Trio at the Beer Tent. Georgie "The Blacksmith" Bonds is fixture of the Philadelphia Blues scene and a member of the Pennsylvania Blues Hall of Fame.
