pocono blues festival
2010 Pocono Blues Festival is July 23-25

Coming to beautiful Big Boulder Resort in Lake Harmony, PA, the three-day Pocono Blues Festival will be rocking the Pocono mountains for the nineteenth-straight year. Mark your calendars for July 23, 24 and 25, as a virtual who’s who of American blues musicians will be present.  As if you needed another excuse to come to the land of everybody’s favorite Native American All-American, Jim Thorpe, (not to mention the nation’s best convenience store, Wawa Food Market!)

 Jimmy “Duck “Holmes, Johnny Rawls and Lady Bianca kick things off Friday, and are followed by two jam-packed days of superlative blues. From legendary blues and gospel performer, Mavis Staples, to Chick Willis to Alabama Mike to the Campbell Brothers to the Chicago Blues Legends, the blues don’t get much better than this folks. Recognized as one of the top blues festivals in the world, the Pocono Blues Festival has showcased more than 300 national and international performers over the years (perhaps lured by the mountain’s acoustically perfect setting), and the lineup seems to get better every year.  

Be sure to bring along chairs and blankets for the outdoor performances, and keep in mind how brisk the Pocono nights can be. To check out the festival’s daily lineup and get more information about tickets and festival guidelines, check out this link:  http://www.poconoblues.com/schedule
