ANA POPOVIC
Ana Popovic is living proof of the old adage about paying your dues in order to sing the blues! Showcasing outstanding stage presence, together with superb technical guitar chops, and brilliantly tight ensemble playing, we are pleased to present the return to Blues Fest of one of blues music’s best international talents, ANA POPOVIC!

MIKE ZITO AND THE WHEEL
This band, displaying outstanding ensemble playing, is almost literally on fire as it tours in support of its 2015 RUF release “Keep Coming Back”. Expect a very exciting closing set at our June 3 “Lotta Blues Show”, as Mike Zito & The Wheel join the ranks of honored returning Blues Fest alumni artists that we are happy to call friends!

HAMILTON LOOMIS
Guitar Player magazine recently said, “If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it.”  Make sure you’ve got your favorite City Park spot staked out on Sunday, June 5 for this incredibly fun young band!

MINGO FISHTRAP
Blues Fest audiences just loved this exciting new, horn-heavy Texas soul-revue’s classic R&B-inflected sounds during its first-ever Hagerstown stop-over in 2014.  We knew then that we’d want to hear more real soon, so we’re delighted for their 2016 return.
