Shakey Graves, Leftover Salmon, Charlie Parr, Molly Tuttle, Lissie, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Charley Crockett, The Lil Smokies, Kitchen Dwellers, Henhouse Prowlers with Tony Trischka and Lillie Mae are also aboard for Blue Ox 2021. Them Coulee Boys, Sunny War, Julian Davis & The Situation, Nora Brown, Jon Stickley Trio, Arkansauce, Armchair Boogie, Kind Country, One Way Traffic, Short Round String Band, Feed The Dog, Intuitive Compass, Barbaro and The High 48s round out next year’s lineup. Pert Near Sandstone will perform on two nights of the festival.

This year’s Blue Ox was canceled due to the pandemic. “The return of the full Blue Ox Music Festival in 2021 will be one of historical celebration after a year of uncertainity and waiting, which has all but shuttered the live music industry,” reads a note from organizers. “Artists, management, crews and venues alike, have all been affected by the COVID pandemic. Yet resilience, creativity and hope, have held the torch high as we discovered ways to stay united through live streaming performance concerts, and an abundance of exciting new music and collaboration.”

Capacity for Blue Ox 2021 will be limited with tickets currently 50% sold out due to rollovers. Tickets are on sale now via the festival’s website.
