Blueberry Bluegrass 2018 Schedule

Donald Teplyske  |  July 3, 2018

Probably Canada's largest and possibly longest-running bluegrass festival (independent verification appears impossible), the Blueberry Bluegrass Festival goes August 3-5 and its schedule has just been released.

I miss the days when Blueberry's headliners-this year Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder (Saturday) and The Travelin' McCourys (Sunday)-stuck around for a couple of the days, played three sets, and became part of the Blueberry community, but now it appears they 'fly-in and fly-out' to present a solitary-if longer-set.

Additional artists do hang out for more than a day, with some appearing on each of the three days. This year, The Po' Ramblin' Boys, Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, and the Kody Norris Show perform daily with others-including Pharis & Jason Romero, Nomad Jones, and the Slocan Ramblers-appearing on two of the three days.

Ticket and camping information, as well as the complete line-up and schedule can be found at Blueberry Bluegrass.

Blueberry Bluegrass is a vibrant and well-operated festival, and it isn't too late to plan your trip to Stony Plain, Alberta. For Americans, the Canadian dollar couldn't be more friendly.

Let me know if you're coming! I believe I will be there on the Sunday to catch The Travelin' McCourys.
