Kenneth Donald Rogers—an American country-music star, photographer, producer, actor, and fellow with a nice beard—has won three Grammys and more than a dozen American Music Awards for his sweet, stirring crooning. Though he won't be toting his dozens of awards, Mr. Rogers will be bringing an impressive showcase of selections from his extensive collection of country hits. To prep the crowd for the main event, The Herndon Brothers—a local act lead by Ray Herndon, a country star known for livin' the dream—will layer the crowd in hometown vibes from their wide library of inspiring and honest tracks.

Bedford Blues & BBQ, a two-day festival held on the grounds adjacent to Bedford’s City Hall, enthralls attendees with performances from blues masters, barbecue-style edibles from local grill gurus, and purchasable crafts from artisans. Headlining act Buddy Guy, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee whose electric-blues playing style influenced guitar legends such as Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, entrances audiences with soulful guitar riffs and a spinning hypnosis wheel. Grammy-winning musician Jonny Lang also takes the stage, proving to skeptics that the child prodigy, with age, has matured in lyric-writing and beard-growing abilities. While vendor fare sates the appetites of concertgoers, a barbecue cookoff competition held on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. (admission not included with Groupon) challenges local meat smokers to concoct culinary masterpieces, impressing ticketholders with small samples of brisket, burnt ends, and other grill-marked cuisine.
