Briggs Farm Blues Festival

(NESCOPECK, PA) – They’re calling July 11-14, 2019 “The Best Weekend of the Year!” This year the Briggs Farm Blues Festival will be celebrating their 22nd birthday.

Since 1998, The Briggs Family has hosted one of the nation’s most revered Blues Festivals on their 250-year-old farm. Through the years they have grown in size, but have maintained a small festival feel. The farm hosts a 4 day/3 night meeting of some very passionate Blues fans on 60 acres of our 430 acre farm.

Acts scheduled to play at the Briggs Farm Blues Festival include: Vanessa Collier, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Annika Chambers, James Armstrong, Southern Avenue, Donna The Buffalo, Bobby Kyle & the Administers, Miz, Robert Kimbrough Sr., the Clarence Spady Band, Lonnie Shields, Cedric Burnside, Slam Allen, Scott Pemberton, Nate Myers, Mikey Junior, King Solomon Hicks, Heather Gillis, and the Alex P. Suter Ministers of Sound.

For their dedication to the Blues, in 2017 they were awarded the “Keeping the Blues Alive” Award in Memphis, TN.
