Adding great excitement to Wisconsin’s growing music scene, the founders and organizers of Country Jam USA in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, have launched the Blue Ox Music Festival, a premiere three-day outdoor music festival celebrating the best in bluegrass, roots and Americana.

Blue Ox will take place at Whispering Pines Campground in Eau Claire from June 11-13. Featuring some of the country’s leading and emerging artists, Blue Ox is co-curated by the Twin Cities’ own award-winning modern American string band, Pert Near Sandstone, which will perform twice throughout the weekend.

Blue Ox's lineup is anchored by touring heavyweights Yonder Mountain String Band, Grammy-award winning DelMcCoury Band, and mandolin master and the “Father of Newgrass” himself, Sam Bush.

Tickets are $100 for two days or $125 for three days, which includes camping. Visit for more information.
