Welcome to a brand-new week! That means another seven days filled with great opportunities to see some friendly faces, hear some great tunes, and boogie down with your best buds.  No plans this week? No problem! Here at The Jamwich we’ve got you covered with a list full of our best suggestions for live concerts and events happening throughout the region this week. Here’s what’s up.

Help make the world a better place this weekend at Musicians Against Childhood Cancer Bluegrass Festival at the Cardinal Center Campgrounds in Marengo, OH; presented by Darrel Adkins and The Bluegrass Classic. This is an annual charitable event, which aims to raise funds for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Since 1962 the treatment protocols that were developed at St. Jude’s have helped increase survival rates of childhood cancer from less than 20% to around 70%.  Musicians scheduled to play the event include Po’ Ramblin Boys, Russel Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Band of Ruhks, Paul Williams, Grascals, Red Marlow, and many more! Be sure to check out the schedule of performances online to know where you’ll need to be, and when you’ll need to be there.  Four-day general admission tickets are on sale for $120, with single-day passes available for $40 per night.  Camping and parking is included with all weekend passes.  To learn more please visit https://www.musiciansagainstchildhoodcancer.com.

The 39th annual Gathering at Chaffee’s is going down this weekend at the Chaffee family property in Girard, PA.  This two-day, two-night celebration started in 1980 as a Fourth of July party among friends and family. The festival has continued to grow over the years, but has made sure to maintain the comfy, familial vibe that made it such a popular destination years prior. This year it will be Spiritual Rez, Mungion, LITZ, Magic Beans, Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers, The Fritz, and several other regional acts providing the jams.  Last-call weekend general admission passes are on sale for $100, with both camping and parking included. Feel goood paying for your ticket knowing that a portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards the Children Advocacy Center of Erie County, as well as Shriner’s Hospital for Children.  If you have any other questions, or just want to purchase your tickets, head on over to www.thegatheringatchaffees.com for more info.
