The Western MD Blues Fest is celebrating 20 years of great blues music in Hagerstown! Come celebrate with four jam-packed, jumpin’ days filled with music from national, regional and local performers!


This dazzling showman & master of the blues harp helped us kick off the very first Western Maryland Blues Fest in 1996! Hear why Rod, wife Honey on keys and his band have won numerous Blues Music Awards over the years since then, including multiple repeats as “Band of the Year”!


The British jazz-blues guitar superstar makes a special trip “across the pond” to close out our fabulous 20th anniversary “Downtown House Party”! The English blues-press describe Matt as “the next Eric Clapton”! Come hear why!


Experienced world-travelers of the blues “road”, Moreland & Arbuckle bring exciting vintage-sounding new guitar and harp blues to close our Sunday City Park stage on May 31.


New Orleans cool trombone rock-blues ensemble always takes the party to another level. Hendrix, Zeppelin & more sound really good on wah-trombone too! Hearing is believing.


Chicago-blues by a terrific showman! Your face won’t be able to stop smiling as absolutely loveable Ed and his crew revel in displaying the ironically funny side of the blues.

And many more old friends and new to celebrate our 20th year, including some of your favorite “Blues Fest alums”! Make your calendars to be in Hagerstown for 4 great days of blues, May 28-31, 2015!
