The highly anticipated, 10 day Gettysburg Festival kicks off on Friday, June 8th!
Five-time Grammy award winner, Robert Cray, launches the Gettysburg Festival lineup into its banner fifth birthday by celebrating the blues, a purely American music style. More than 100 additional events will explore a full range of American art forms: Broadway-style “improv” theater, farm-to-table cuisine, traditional as well as contemporary brass, America’s largest gathering of historical artists, up-and-coming Americana folk trio Red Molly, and a choral concert exploring the roots of America’s Negro spirituals, along with much more.
