Blistered Fingers Bluegrass Festival

LITCHFIELD — Blistered Fingers Bluegrass Festival will celebrate its 50th festival Wednesday, June 13, through Sunday, June 17, at the Litchfield Fairgrounds, 30 Plains Road. Directions are located on the flyers or on the website, according to a news release from Sandy Cormier, promoter of the festival.
The festival grounds have a big stage that was built in 2010, indoor bathroom facilities, four free hot showers and numerous water hookups throughout the grounds, and electrical hookups. There will be several types of vendors located on the grounds. The festival location has that “‘Welcome Home’ country atmosphere. Everyone who attends loves the camping grounds. There’s also a lot of field picking through the whole time of the festival,” said Cormier, promoter of the festival, along with her husband, Greg Cormier.
The event also includes the Blistered Fingers Kids Academy. Blistered Fingers has a free, relaxed, informative three-day music program for children for ages 6-18. The focus is how to play, sing and perform bluegrass music. Students can bring their own instruments and will commit to the three-day program. The kids all get a free T-shirt and perform a couple of songs as a group on Main stage.
The gates will open at 8 a.m. Sunday, June 10. Weekend tickets for each festival will cover four days of music and camping from Wednesday to Saturday and Sunday Morning Gospel Sing Along and Jam.
Performers include Blue Highway, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, David Parmley & The Cardinal Tradition, Little Roy & Lizzy Long, Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass, The Dave Adkins Band, Zink & Company, The Misty Mountaineers, Tony & Heather Mabe, The Baker Family, Back Woods Road, Bluegrass Gospel Sing& Jam and the host band Blistered Fingers.
