Sandy & Greg, We want to compliment you on the great festivals you put on.We have been attending your festivals for a number of years. We also attend festivals in Arizona and Cal in the winter and we see some of the same bands that you engage, but there is no better organized festival anywhere than yours. Finally Litchfield is certainly a great venue to stage it. God Bless

I just wanted to let you know what a great job you did singing that song of Put me in your Pocket. And also it was the first time I got to set up front and I really enjoyed the show.  The band band preformed so well.
It looked like everyone in the band enjoyed what they were doing.  Good job, well done!  I'll be anxious to see you again in July. Thanks for the great show!

Had a wonderful time at the show on Sunday. Toby talked you guys up but he didn't do you justice. Just awesome. It all ended too soon. It was a pleasure meeting you Greg, Sandy, and Chad. Very nice to see you again Bobby. Always a pleasure. And finally, Toby. I've always been proud of you but your performance really filled my heart. Thanks brother. Love you all.

Hi Greg and Sandy,
Sorry for the delay in replying but it just dawned on me that it would be a good idea to let you know when we will be attending the festival! We hope to be there on the Saturday assuming Icelandic volcanic ash doesn't hold us up! Thank you very much for your kind offer and we are looking forward to the event.
Best wishes,

Greg and Sandy & Family
First of all, congratulations on hosting another wonderful festival!  Hope you all get a chance to sit back with your feet up and get to enjoying some peace and quiet.
Comments? I'll start with the negative ones:
Getting caught in a rain shower on the way back from the showers...(but hey, since my hair was already wet I really didn't care, so I guess this really doesn't count as a negative)
Too short - it was over way, way, too soon...probably not soon enough for you guys, with all the work involved, but it seemed like it was over so quick!
Umm....can't think of any others.
Positives:
Wonderful, awesome, terrific, fun, entertaining, happy time. The staff you have working the festival are terrific - it's so nice to deal with them.  I can't begin to imagine how much work these festivals are to pull together - you guys are amazing!  It comes off looking so classy and professional and effortless to those of us attending.  No wonder the bands love to come to Blistered Fingers!  You're the best! Many, many thanks to you for all the work and the tremendous effort you put  in to making the festivals such a fantastic time. It's greatly appreciated! Can't wait to get back for the August Festival - It can't come soon enough!

Hi Greg and Sandy, Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the June festival and the new location. I am always so grateful for the environment that surrounds the Blistered Fingers Festivals, from the greeting at the gate to the "check ins" from Ken!! Everyone is always very kind. We would also like to thank the Bluegrass Diamonds for sharing their merchandise table with us on Saturday after our set! We very much appreciated their hospitality!! Regards, Dianna Fallon (Blue Around the Edges)

Sandy and Greg,
  We have been coming to the B'F. festival spring and fall for about 15 years. You don't know us (maybe by sight) but we wanted to take time to let you know how much we enjoyed the new grounds in Litchfield. Because we always arrived late Thursday morning we would always go to the big field on the right  in Sidney. I forget the name you had for it. This week we got to Litchfield late Thursday afternoon and the grounds were already pretty full. The staff took us around on golf carts till we found site with elec. They really were interested in helping us and making sure we were happy with where we were.  I imagine that job continued to be more difficult as the day wore on. The B.F. staff has always been great and that continued throughout the weekend. It happened that the spot we were in had the friendliest people at the festival and even a couple of our friends happened to be parked close. We had the best time yet at B.F. with all the visiting and picking and music. We also appreciate that the Cormier's are a close and loving family.  We like hearing about the engagements and babies, and we like seeing you perform on stage with family members, it is such a blessing to be able to do that. We can tell even from afar that you are both  loving and dedicated parents and grandparents. We love the new location and we tried to do our part in supporting the vendors who were there. The lineup was fine and we really like the gospel sing with Mike and Mary on Sundays. One last thing, we brought a couple to their first ever festival this weekend, they camped beside us. He is a very good flat picker and his wife likes to sing. They had a great time and can't wait to come back. Thanks for everything.

2009 was my second summer at Blistered Fingers. Stinks it is going to be at a new place cause My group (yea all the teens you see running around with trash bag rain coats and bare feet) has a lot of memories built up at the old place. But that's ok we will make lots of new ones. I just wanted to say on here Thank you everyone that made all the memories Possible. We all have lots of memories with our friend Craig Morse there, and he loved the place too :) Thanks for putting up with us. And thanks to everyone who has been praying for Craigs Family and Friends. It's been rough, But he's playing his fiddle for God now, even faster then he was down here. So everyone get practicing so we can Keep up when we meet up with him again :D

First of all we would like to thank you for who you people are and what you do. We enjoy your music and the fun you bring to the Bluegrass festivals! So far we have been able to attend the festivals in Fort Fairfield, ME, but be able to travel to some of the others. We would really like to here you people do a couple of Dolly Pardons bluegrass songs from her CD called Halos and Horns. We believe you guys would do great with songs like "A Dagger Through The Heart." and " Raven Dove " or the title song " Halos and Horns " . We know you people would do great with them. Thank you for the opportunity to comment and we know you people will continue to be who you are, Thanks Again.

I wanted to thank you for a great experience at what was only my second Bluegrass Festival ever, but certainly not my last. Even with my lack of coordination coming out of the camper rendering me a gimp for the weekend, it was fantastic! I appreciate the music, hospitality, medical attention, and thoughtfulness in getting me to and from the stage area via golf cart.
It was a pleasure to meet you, and I look forward to seeing you next year.

It was so thoughtful of you to think of us at the festival in June. It was very hard for me and it will be again in August. Your festivals were always our favorites! I received so many cards from folks from different festivals. It made me so happy that he was well liked. I treasure the cards. I miss coming to Maine more then anything!

Blistered Fingers Festival hosts some of my fondest memories.... I will never forget the wonderful opportunities we had playing on your stage. Especially our first open stage there. That stands out among all the others :o)
I hope and pray your festival will be to many others what it was to me: A great place to grow up in the music :o)
Take care. Thanks again for all the blood, sweat, and tears... You may not know it, but y'all have helped shape who I am today.

Just a "delayed" note of thanks for the August 08 festival. As always, a great time, plenty of good music, great field pickin, and outstanding service by the staff. Thank you VERY much. On another subject................While we were there at the festival on Friday morning I had a totally unexpected vehicle breakdown. Being unfamiliar with any automotive services in the area I looked in the program flyer that I received upon entering the festival grounds. There it was! Just what I needed. A towing service nearby and a full-service, independently operated repair shop. I called Sidney towing at 547-3592. Rusty, the owner, said he was on a call and would respond as soon as he got done with that service call. In 45 minutes he was there, loaded my car and hauled it to Exit 32 Automotive service on Lyons Road tel. 547-4006. The towing was fast, efficient, and very reasonably priced. Exit 32 Auto immediately determined the problem, called me with an estimate of parts, labor, and time for pick up. He did a fine job on the repairs, at the cost quoted and in a timely manner. Both of these businesses are a credit to their respective fields of service. Both were kind, courteous, VERY reasonably priced and did an outstanding job for me.  I would recommend them to any of your patrons in the future.
Thank you all so much and we'll see you in June.

Hi Just went to the  County Bluegrass Festival.  We can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed it (as usual, never disappointed) as we do all Bluegrass.  We just couldn't let another day go by without letting you know how much we appreciate all your hard work in keeping these festivals going.  We realize that it's not just the work that we see at the festivals but; oh so many months of planning.  Thanks to people like you who share their enthusiasm with us we get to enjoy it more and more.  We are looking forward to more festivals. We love all of you.
Thanks again!

I admire what you do and finally realize the hard work and effort that goes in to running the sound, not to mention a festival and a band. I've watched you all season and to this day I shake my head and wonder how you folks do it. Keep in touch, Arden & Kimberley Williams. PS.

Hey !! You are wonderful !!
We've been, seen, listened, ate, talked, sung, whistled and loved every minute of the 2007 festivals!! Bet I left something out. Everyone is fantastic. The musicians of course are outstanding and some even more than one can express. The vendors are great and listening to the jamming campers, well who can stay up that early ? What a wonderful time. Even the storm didn't want to upset every-ones fun and went right on bye. We love it again our second year and look forward to many more with you all.
Love and Prayers

Hello Folks! My name is Barb Burns and my husband Alan and I live near Summerside, P.E.I. Canada. We are great fans of bluegrass music and try to catch as many festivals as we can each summer. Last summer we were at the festival in New Richmond, Quebec and truly had a great time. We thoroughly enjoyed your sets!! We wouldn't lie to you and after checking your site are tentatively thinking of attending your festival in June. We always wanted to cross on the Cat from Yarmouth to Bar Harbor so we would be traveling up that way staying one night in Bar Harbor and looking around the town the next day. Yours in bluegrass.

Hi Sandy and Greg,
We will see you at St. Albans tomorrow night. I am really looking forward to the show. Chet and Kathy are coming down with us. We will be staying the night with Lucille and Stubby. We always have a great time at their place. We will also be going down in April to your show also. I am getting anxious for the bluegrass festivals and warmer weather. It would be nice if the nights are warmer than last year. It made it harder to get out and jam. See you tomorrow night. Love Ya All, Lucille & Lanny

I am writing to let you all know of a great loss in the Old Time music world. Mr. Hank Wilkey of Maine and Massachusetts (Cape Cod) passed away on 12/24/06 at 1:00 am. I know he has played music in Maine with lots of people. He used to talk about having Mr. Jimmy Cox fixing his banjo. I know there is no service as of yet because of his sons. But, next summer on Cape Cod the rest of his family will be holding some kind of Memorial. If you would like to know more about it, please contact me. I will keep all who contact me in touch with what is going on. Hank is now playing on a higher stage. We will all miss him greatly. His niece.

Wanted to get back to you and let you know how much we enjoyed the June Festival in Sidney.  It was sure great fun and so much in fact that we went to Fort Fairfield in July and planning to go back to Sidney in August.  We are hooked, line & sinker!  The music can reach deep and yet be fun, too.  All the entertainers were at their best as far as we were concerned.  What a wonderful way to spread love and happiness!  Keep up the good work and doing what you do best.
May God continue to Bless you all!

P.S.  My husband once worked for a man that had this quote on his construction trucks:
                                      "Do What You Do Do Well"     and you indeed do!!

I was first introduced to your band at the Weston Playhouse last Feb 05, and again was delighted to see you this past weekend (Feb 25th, 06) also in Weston. I have learned to love Bluegrass and the bluegrass family. It was through a member of Candi Sawyer's family that I got closer and more involved. Before that, I had many CD's but had not been to live performances. All that changed last year. The shows in Weston and the Jenny Brook Festival showed me how great the music was live !!! Your band has such enthusiasm, that a smile as wide as Sandy's seems to always be on my face when listening. Chad's performance was just great as was meeting his wife and new daughter. I liked the newest member of the band also. What a joy to be there. Oh, and thanks so much for getting Fernan to join in ..His voice is wonderful, and it was a real treat for all of us there.. Please continue the good work and hope to see you again during the summer...

Greg & Sandy
Just a note to thank you for doing what you do.  The August Festival was our first but won't be our last!  I was told that if I was to only attend one festival a year then make it Blistered Fingers.  That was excellent advise.  To have a festival of that size go so smoothly is a testament to your dedicated hard work to put this on.  Doing all of this plus having your first grandbaby and in the midst of losing one of your band members was an emotional roller coaster that everyone could see and our hearts went out to you as you shared your sorrow on one hand and joy on the other.  I did find it ironic that Rustic Harmony's song "She's a Treasure"  seemed to fit in so well.
Already making plans to attend the June festival.  Thank you again!

It sure is hard leaving the band. I don't have the words to say how much fun it's been. I do want to thank Greg, Sandy, and Chad for the chance to play with a band of their caliber. It's been one heck of a ride. You are great musicians, great people, but most of all, you have become my best friends. Thanks again!! Love Gene

I am just going through the internet looking for an old friend and I came across this web site. As a matter of fact I was sitting having a drink and listening to some of the bluegrass cardinals. I was down in the US of A last year and on my way back from Florida I got a hotel room in Kentucky and I couldn't believe the music coming out of the guest room on the main floor. I went down stairs and sat and watched these people play. Unbelievable the sound coming out of this band.  I was told if you want to here some real down home back wood bluegrass is to go into some of the small towns in Kentucky and West Virginia. That is a state i would move to in a second. I think the country is so beautiful. Anyway just letting you know how I feel about the music you Americans come out with and the beautiful country you live in. Any good areas to go listen to some real good down to earth music and meet some real down to earth people let me know.  Thanks JABBER

My daughter, mom, aunt and I really enjoyed the benefit concert you did for the Rainbow Girls. I have to tell you that since going to the Blistered Fingers concert, my nine year old daughter Blake has talked about taking voice lessons and singing blue grass music. She's so funny...she says, "I don't think you have to worry about blue grass music being inappropriate Mom" (I am always talking to the kids about some of today's music being inappropriate).

Sandy and Greg,
You have a very nice festival and one of the things that would keep it nice is to not allow people to mark off 2, 3, or 4 camping spaces for others that they are saving. It seems so greedy and not considerate to others and it is not in the tradition on which you have built this festival. You have done a wonderful job. Keep it up. This change would be really helpful.

I am 66 yrs old and love music. I play reeds in two community bands. One year ago I purchased a five string banjo and thought I could learn to play it with little difficulty. Boy, was I wrong. My hat is off to the people that can play it. I can't seem to become automatic with the chords or fingering. When I play tenor sax/clarinet I don't need to think of my finger positions. When I practice the banjo, I must have a brain made of concrete. Any advice? I really would love to play bluegrass banjo, in fact I would sell the reeds. Thank you for your time and such an informative website.

Hope to see you perform some day.

The August 2004 Blistered Fingers Festival was super! Kudos to Greg and Sandy Cormier for a friendly, well-run festival. Bands were great, and vendors were among the best (those fried clams can't be beat). Best thing is, they've kept the price down and kept from getting an attitude, unlike certain other big Maine festivals (which we've sworn off).
We'll be at both the June and August festivals next year.

We've met in Summerside PEI a couple of years ago and you sent me a demo which I still play on my show. Just wanted to say Hello to you and your family and maybe in the near future I will attend your great festivals! I promise. I'm a radio DJ and host the show Saturday Night Jamboree Show here on the Gaspe Coast, Quebec. The audience loves bluegrass music and we just hosted the first Bluegrass Festival in New Richmond, Quebec, a huge success. I can give info, if you need some. So take care and keep up the good work, now ya hear!

This year was our second trip to "Blistered Fingers" Festival. The first was very good, this one was stupendous!!! Where do you go from here? The mingling of bluegrass fans and exchanges of tales about other festivals, and the wonderful music, serve to make the time spent with you disappear all to quickly. You do an admirable job of acknowledging your Canadian counterparts, and I'm sure that endears you to your fans "North of the Border" See you in 2004!!

Hi gang!
I was just in PEI this weekend and saw an awesome bluegrass band. I don't remember the band name, but the members were a man named Carl (played harmonica real well), Morris (played guitar and bass fiddle), Ned (played guitar, has recovered from a stroke rather well). They are all associated with a great man by the name of Lou Arsenault. Please help me out if you can. Thanks

As the host of a local Bluegrass radio show here on Cape Cod, Mass. it has been my pleasure to play your music quite often during my program. I must admit that it has been almost 4 years since my family and I have been able to attend your festival due to schedule conflicts... But, 2003 is a new year and, we have already begun juggling our time off so we can be there this year. Keep on doing what your to keep Bluegrass music alive and well. Take care and God bless.......

I saw Sandy singing over in P.E.I. last year and I am looking forward to seeing the Blistered Fingers Band perform there this year. Hope that some point in our lives that we can attend your festival. We have heard some really good comments about it. We do manage to attend most all the festivals in Nova Scotia and the Memramcook festival that is put on by a great family.

 I'm coming from South Germany and I'm a fan of Bluegrass music and old time country as well. I've been 2 times in Fan Fair/ Nashville and saw a lot of Bands and" heroes" like Mac Wiseman and Ralph Stanley, Osborne Brothers and so on. Every first night in Nashville "belongs" the bluegrass music. I found you over a internet-site where "MILLIONS" of bluegrass bands are listed and I stopped by your name!! Wish you the best for the next years. Stay in your kind of music and don't  ever take drums to your sound. Herby

Hi Greg, Sandy and all, Hope you are having a great winter! I received your Blistered Fingers info pack. Thank you for taking the time to call for my address on Chebeague ISLAND. I hope to get to at least one show this year. I have a lobster business now, and summer is the season to make the bill payments. I really miss the festivals especially when I can't make it to see one of yours. Always a friend and fan; Wink

Having heard my first "French" BG at Blistered Finger's (late after the big storm), I was moved to go on up to Nova Scotia to the Cansio Festival. Spent next 10 weeks exploring NS and Cape Breton fiddling. Thank you!

Bluegrass Fans: We run a fan club for The BLISTERED FINGERS BLUEGRASS BAND. The finest in the Northeast. Hope most of you who read this can stop by at the booth we set up at the festivals put on by the band. We also setup at many of the other festivals that the band plays in. Let's make this a booming year for their festivals as well as all Bluegrass festivals in general. Supporting these festivals will ensure that Bluegrass will remain alive and well.
