Mountain Festivals and more

The mountains stay alive with festivals and events all summer. One of the more interesting to be announced is at Hunter Mountain in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Located near the location of the epochal Woodstock concert from another era, Hunter will host the first annual blues music festival. The festival will take place in Hunter, NY August 26 – 28. Esteemed blues-rock guitarist Elvin Bishop will headline the festival’s Friday lineup, legendary Allman Brothers Band singer and organ player Gregg Allman. Yes the Allman brothers were at the original summer event in the 60's.
