This year's event will begin with a set from local player, event organizer, and Emcee, Charlie Barath. Charlie's been at this Blues thing for quite a while, and is making a name for himself well beyond his beloved Upper Ohio Valley not only with his Harmonica playing, but also his Vocals and Songwriting.

Next up is Jake Friel, a phenomenal young talent from central Ohio. Jake has been turning heads as a touring musician for many years, and he just keeps gaining fans every time he steps up to the mic.

Connecticut's Ryan Hartt will then hit the bandstand. A true veteran of the genre, Ryan has led his band, The Blue Hearts, since the beginning of the century, and is in no hurry to slow down. Whether as a Songwriter, Singer, Harmonica or Guitar Player, Ryan's got an act that will get you moving in your seat.

And of course the night wouldn't be complete without a Grand Finale with all three of these talented and accomplished players sharing the bandstand.

If the line-up of harp players isn't enough to get you excited, add to that an incredible all-star house band led by Pittsburgh's own Jimmy Adler!  Jimmy's authentic Blues Guitar work will be supplemented with "Sudden Steve" Binsberger on Keyboard, Bob Insko on Upright Bass, and JR Richley on Drums.

So mark your calendars, and plan on joining us at Moondogs for another fabulous installment of Harptoberfest!

Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm.
