Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 16! That’s the date for our second annual Westsylvania Blues Happy Hour. Here are all the details:
Blues by Jimmy Adler
We are THRILLED to have Pittsburgh-based Jimmy Adler performing at the Blues Happy Hour. Adler writes, records, and performs original songs steeped in the tradition of the blues artists he has spent a lifetime studying. With four CDs to his name, he’s a live-wire entertainer who packs passion and energy into every performance. His powerful vocals compliment the spirited playing and elegant phrasing of his clean, fat guitar tone.
Jimmy has thrilled audiences from the West Coast to to the East Coast and even in France. Blues fans—prepare yourself for a great night.
Beer by Levity Brewing
Last year we were lucky enough to have Levity Brewing Co. join us and share some of the beers they were been working on. A year later, they are open for business—the first brewery in Indiana, PA since 1939. And they’ll be back at the Blues Happy Hour! Levity will bring a special selection of brews along for tasting by our VIP ticket holders.
Beer fans—you won’t want to miss this.
If there’s one question the steering committee gets asked more than any other, it’s “Who’s playing this year?” Well, if you want to be among the first to find out our lineup, this is event for you. We’ll be announcing our full lineup for May 28, 2016 at the Blues Happy Hour.
And There’s More…
We’ll have DJ’ed blues music, silent auctions for items from local artists and businesses, and a variety of snacks and appetizers.
They are also available at The Artists Hand Gallery, Michael B Shoes, Holiday Beverages, at the Indiana Arts Council office, from any Steering Committee member. Tickets will also be available at the door.
VIP tickets are $30 and get you in at 5:00 p.m., right when we crack open the first kegs from Levity. General admission gets you in at 6:00 p.m. All attending the event must be at least 21 years old.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Festival’s Patron Campaign, which aims to raise $6,000 in support of the festival by April 1.
