Pennsylvania Blues Fest – Saturday

_dsc9940-2It is the 25th year of Blues in the Poconos.  Always a good time as people from all over attend.  The BluesBeatNews Blog will cover the acts in three posts, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Then, two more for the evening concerts.  With so many things going on, I am adding another Blog to cover the people I saw.  Using my 500 mm lens I also took a number of crowd shots.  The Main Stage and a comfortable seat kept me away from the Tent Stage but I will list the acts.

The tent stage also had some of the acts from the main stage.

Anthony Geraci & the Boston Blues Allstars

I haven’t been able to get a good shot of Anthony this festival season.  But this stage ste-up made it a little.  So I made up for some lost shots with some extras.
