Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival

Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival

A brand new music festival in Chicago. On November 22 the stage of the Congress Theater will be filled with big name blues and bluegrass artists like The David Grisman Quintet and The Avett Brothers:

The Congress Theater, in conjunction with newly-formed KingTello Presents, is proud to announce the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival (cbgbfestival.com). While rooted in the foot-stomping influences of bluegrass and blues, the Festival will transport the concertgoer through the genre-defying evolution of music today. The one-day event, held on Saturday, November 22nd from noon to midnight, will serve as a tribute to two schools of music that continue to shape and inspire contemporary rock, jamband, funk, folk, roots, Americana, and indie cultures.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to savingtinyhearts.org.
