What You'll Get
Before blues music entertained audiences at festivals, its ability to make people cry made it a backup emergency eyewash in chemistry laboratories. Take advantage of emotion-inducing music with today’s GrouponLive deal to the Bedford Blues & BBQ festival held Saturday and Sunday, September 3–4 in Bedford. Children 5 years and younger are admitted for free. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get two-day passes for two people (a $20 value).
- For $20, you get two-day passes for four people (a $40 value).
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.
