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 15th year !
