LITCHFIELD — Blistered Fingers Bluegrass Festival is celebrating our 54th festival at the Litchfield Fairgrounds (30 Plains Road). After taking 2020 off due to the pandemic we are excited to welcome everyone back to the festival to bring the rich bluegrass music back to the Kennebec Valley. The festival location has that “Welcome Home” Country atmosphere. Everyone who attends loves our camping grounds. We also have a lot of field picking through the whole time of the festival,” said Sandy Cormier, the promoter of the festival along with her husband Greg Cormier.
We have the Blistered Fingers Kids Academy. Blistered Fingers has a free, relaxed, informative three day music program for children for ages 6-18. The focus is how to play, sing and perform bluegrass music. Students can bring their own instruments and will commit to the three-day program. The kids all get a free T-shirt and perform a couple of songs as a group on the main stage. We’re all so proud!
The festival grounds have a big stage that was built in 2010, indoor bathroom facilities, four free hot showers and numerous water hookups throughout the grounds, and electrical hookups. There will be several types of vendors located on the grounds. The gates will open at 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 13 for early bird camping. Weekend tickets for each festival will cover four days of great music and camping from Thursday to Saturday and Sunday Morning Gospel Sing Along and Jam.
