The 20th Annual Heritage Music BluesFest Announces MainStage Schedule

In our planning of the 20th annual festival, we acknowledge the seriousness of the current COVID-19 situation. We are currently assessing how to move forward in light of the current pandemic. We sincerely hope that, by August, this is all behind us. We look forward to a healthy future when we can all gather to enjoy our favorite music together. After all, "THE BLUES" is a HEALER.

With that in mind we are pleased to announce that the 20th Annual Heritage Music BluesFest, will be held on August 7, 8, 9, in Wheeling, WV, and would like to present our MainStage LineUp.

Isle of Man-born guitarist/singer/songwriter Davy Knowles will open the festival as well as host Friday's AfterJam at River City. Closing the festival MainStage on Friday will be a tribute to Albert Collins featuring Ronnie Baker Brooks and Coco Montoya.

Saturday's closer is the 2020 Blues Music Award nominee for Best Blues Rock Album and Best Blues Rock Artist, Walter Trout. Saturday's River City AfterJam will be hosted by Nick Schnebelen.

Closing out the MainStage of the 20th Annual Weekend of Award Winning Blues will be Acoustic Blues Artist Nominee Eric Bibb followed by legendary Blues guitarist Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters. Sunday's AfterJam will be hosted by International Blues Challenge winning Band HoRoJo Trio and Best Guitarist JW Jones.
