2024 Chenango Blues Festival

The Chenango Blues Fest is a family-friendly event run by an all-volunteer staff. Their motto is “by fans, for fans.” The Chenango Blues Fest is the 2016 recipient of The Blues Foundations Keeping the Blues Alive award as well as a two-time recipient of the Russell J. Perlman Award for the most outstanding project to apply for an NYS Decentralization grant, which is administered by the Chenango Arts Fund. 

The Devon Allman Project is a six-piece world-class band that has previously toured almost 20 countries. The band is led by Devon Allman, son of The Allman Brothers guitarist Gregg Allman. The band is known for gracefully blending genres and jam in the same way that the Allman family is known for.

Other performers include Paul Thorn – a bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly Southern American who speaks universal truths; Bywater Call, a powerhouse seven-piece Southern soul, a roots rock band from Toronto, Canada; Sue Fole, a virtual triple threat as a lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter; award-winning guitar virtuoso and soul-deep singer Coco Montoya; and more.

Camping has become a very popular way to enjoy the festival and the ranks of people setting up tents or bringing in RVs grows every year.  This year the fairgrounds is planning to install more RV hookups to try and keep up with demand.  Those bringing tents have a nice area under the trees (and some even under cover!) and there is a shower building on site.  The stages are right on the grounds so it’s a great way to enjoy the festivities.

The festival also has a nice variety of food and craft vendors to go along with the music and on Saturday there is a children’s craft tent for the younger fans.   With the Thursday and Friday shows being free all you need to do is buy a ticket for Saturday to enjoy award winning blues all weekend long for this great family friendly event.

Tickets for the 2024 Chenango Blues Festival are on sale now.
