“We are excited to present the music festival in a different format this year and continue our efforts to assist those living with Multiple Sclerosis. This format will allow all to enjoy the music and learn about the cause from wherever you may be located. This year the weather won’t stop us! We are especially excited to bring back November Blue as our headlining act. Based in Nashville but all native sons of Western, PA, November Blue delivers a dynamite blend of Americana, blues, country and folk-rock music that will catch your attention – tasteful harmonies, stellar musicianship, clever lyrics, and arrangements on their songs and covers that rival the original versions.” says Michael Arnold, member of the MuSic for MS committee (whose sister Dorothy lives with Multiple Sclerosis).
