Festival Fever: Bluestock Update

Monday, March 14th, 2011

We’ve already told you about Bluestock – the big, three-day blues festival that will be taking place at Hunter Mountain in Hunter on August 26-28.

But Bluestock organizers have added some notable new acts to the bill.

Gregg Allman – who released a solo album “Low Country Blues” on Rounder Records earlier this year – will headline one of the three days. The other previously announced headliners are Buddy Guy and Elvin Bishop.

New Orleans hornman Trombone Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue have also been added to the line-up.

And the strangest new Bluestock announcement?

That’s right, film action star Steven Seagal will co-host the festival, as well as perform with his band Thunderbox.
