Tickets for the Georgia Blues & Roots Festival now on sale.
We have 3 levels of seating available: VIP Reserved @ $50 per seat or $300 for a table for 6; Stadium Seating @ $25, and Lawn @ $15. Once again the ABS has reserved the best table seating in our name and is allowing our membership to purchase seating/tickets directly from us. You can pay us in person and reserve your spot without having to pay the TicketMaster fee. In addition early ticket sales help us with cash flow for advertising and other up front costs. Contact George Klein at a monthly Gathering, out and about at a blues show or email him at for other options. Tickets are also available at the Mable House Barnes Box Office or through TicketMaster.
