2010 Festival Lineup Announced

MonmouthBlues.com is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2010 Deep Blue Innovators Blues Festival. This year’s festival, to be held on Saturday, October 23rd, will be the best yet. We’ll see you at the show!

Starting the festival off will be our old friends Hayes and Fleming.

Next, we’ll enjoy the old-school, energized guitar mastery of Oklahoma’s own Little Joe McLerran.

Blues troubadour Scott Ainslie is trekking down from Vermont and will take the stage and deliver a set of powerful slide guitar blues.

Master guitar virtuoso Dave Specter will bring his band to present a set of eclectic jazz-inspired blues.

…and headlining this year’s festival will be the one and only Carolina Chocolate Drops! We’re very fortunate to have this internationally-recognized group make a stop in Monmouth to thrill us with their high-energy, toe-tappin’ deep roots blues. This is not to be missed!

Before the festival, we will once again have a guitar workshop, this time featuring both Little Joe McLerran and master-teacher Scott Ainslie.

Tickets will go on sale online later this month and will be available at local outlets by mid-July.
