The Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA) and the Town of Babylon, in cooperation with Suffolk County and the Bluegrass Club of Long Island, brings the 19th Annual Long Island Bluegrass & Roots Music Festival to Tanner Park in Copiague, NY, located in a beautiful setting on the Great South Bay of Long Island, on August 21, 2021. There will be seven hours of continuous music from 12PM to 7PM, as well as workshops and a jamming area for attendees who wish to bring their instruments, fun activities, and food vendors.
This year’s line-up is filled with artists who live and perform on Long Island and in the NY Metro area. The great Long Island mandolin virtuoso, Buddy Merriam, will be performing with his band, Back Roads. Buddy hosts a Bluegrass radio show on WUSB Stony Brook, and is always a crowd favorite. In addition, there will be six other local bands being featured on the mainstage from our area.
Tickets are $20.00 for General Admission, $15.00 for Military, Disabled, BACCA Members, and teens 12-16. Children 11 and under are Free. Tickets are available at the gate or through Eventbrite at:
