Delta Blue's

Pennsylvania Blues Calendar

~ listing Blues events in & around Pennsylvania ~

Celebrating our 20th Year on the Web!

~ December ~ January ~

~ February & Beyond ~

 

** the Blues Calendar is updated (almost) daily, so please come back often **

** Plea to All Festival Organizers (aka "Delta's Rant")**

** "VIP" stage-front seating is bad for the fans AND the performers...messes up the whole dynamic **

** give 'em special access, CDs, food, drink, fancy porta-johns...but please keep the stage front open **

** Thanks for your attention. And now, back to the music... **

To add an event to our Blues Calendar, just email us*.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you live in the central part of the state, sign up for

~ Delta Blue's Centre County Blues Alert ! ~

...for a monthy email posting of regional blues events.

Support live Blues by attending at least one Blues show a month (at a club, concert hall or festival), by buying CDs by your favorite Blues artists, by signing up for the Centre County Blues Alert !, and by joining one of Pennsylvania's Blues organizations ~ the Billtown Blues Association; the Blues Society of Central PA; the Blues Society of Western Pennsylvania; the Bucks County Blues Society; the Lehigh Valley Blues Network; or the Pittsburgh Blues Society.

Gigs can change quickly, so call the venue before traveling any distance. Since we can't guarantee that the information in the calendar is accurate, "verify before you fly"...and enjoy!

* All gig postings for bands, venues and festivals are absolutely free, with no strings attached. We'll list any Blues performances (acts/gigs/events/shows/festivals) anywhere in Pennsylvania or adjacent states. All we ask is that you email your info. to us periodically so we don't have to visit dozens of sites to find the dates ourselves.

Thanks for supporting Delta Blue's Pennsylvania Blues Calendar, now in our 19th year !
