Bluegrass Festival Draws a Crowd in Sidney 

It’s the 33rd Blistered Fingers Family Bluegrass Music Festival in Sidney this weekend. Festivites get underway Thursday evening with a number of concerts at the Silver Spur Riding Club. Bluegrass big names like Simon St. Pierre and Dailey and Vincet are set to hit the stage Friday and Saturday. Hundreds have set up their tents, campers and RV’s to take in the sounds of what is the root of American music. Bluegrass is at the heart of the Cormier family who make up the band “Blistered Fingers”. Sandy Cormier says, “It’s not just bluegrass, it’s a family reunion.” Greg and Sandy Cormier started the festival 18 years ago and have since turned it into a 2-time event each summer.
