Last December, music fans of all stripes gathered at the Congress Theater for the first-ever Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Fest, a day-long concert featuring big names like The Avett Brothers and David Grisman. Due to the impressive response, we’re getting round two in a few weeks. This year’s event offers another solid lineup, including Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Dr. Dog, Emmitt-Nershi Band and Van Ghost, as well as 50-plus vendor booths, live improv, film screenings and more.
Tickets for the event are $35 (free for kids 12 and under), but Centerstage is giving away four pairs of passes for free! To enter the contest by December 4, head here.
