It is three days of music under sunny skies and moonlit evenings when the Tottenham Bluegrass Festival returns this year with a full lineup of bands from around the continent.

The annual festival is a highlight of the summer for many people, as they come from not only the local region, but around the country to see top bluegrass bands perform on the stage in the natural amphitheatre at the Tottenham Conservation Area.

There are 12 bands and performers scheduled to appear this year.

Last year, the pandemic stopped American bands from performing when there were concerns over border issues at the time. However, the borders are now open, and bands from the south are once again returning.

Local band, Beeton Creek Rising, is back this year and will be performing on Friday evening and Saturday.

The PO’ Ramblin’ Boys, from Tennessee, will be on stage three times, on Friday evening and two performances on Saturday.

Another band from the southern state, The Tennessee Bluegrass Band, will perform three times and close out the show on Saturday night.

The Spinney Brothers is a duo hailing from Nova Scotia that will be on stage on Saturday and Sunday.

Granite Hill, a band from London, Ont., will have two performances – one on Saturday and one leading off the entertainment on Sunday.

Another London band, New Cumberland, will open the show on Friday, with two more performances on Saturday.

Washboard Hank is a solo performer, singer/songwriter, and backwoods philosopher who will entertain with great music and some fun stories.

Another Canadian band, Denis LePage & HighBanks, will be on stage twice on Saturday and will close the festival on Sunday afternoon.

Five-piece band Jake Lauzon & Backcountry will perform on Friday evening and twice on Saturday.

Stoney Lonesome, based out of the Orangeville area, will have a single performance on Friday evening.

The Schotts, Darrin and Alison, are a duo who will perform on Saturday and Sunday.

The Tottenham Bluegrass Festival is three days of fun and great music that will take place at the Tottenham Conservation Area on June 23, 24, and 25.
