Lebanon Ohio Blues Festival - August 5 - 6
If you want to see the live stream from either night, please visit the Lebanon Blues Festival YouTube Channel.
Thanks to the Lebanon Blues Festival for allowing Bob Margolin and friends raffle off signed guitars Friday and Saturday night the Pinetop Perkins Foundation. The Lebanon Blues Festival is a fundraiser for Lebanon Optimist Club but this year, with Bob headling on Saturday night, they were kind enough to allow us to raffle the autographed guitars from our workshop instructors and we raised $2,813 to go towards scholarships in 2023.
Bob and his "friends" were nice enough to have a couple "Pinetoppers" on stage with him on Saturday night. A special shout out to Pinetopper Ben Levin having his band do a fantastic job of backing Bob on stage Saturday.

2022 Workshop Registration - IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
The Pinetop Perkins Foundation is looking forward to holding our workshops in person this year. We have grandfathered in previous registrants who were unable to attend for the past two years and as a result our guitar workshop is full. We have limited space in our Piano, Harmonica, Bass and Drums workshops.
If you are interested in attending, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you with registration, scholarship and payment information should space be available. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process and look forward to another successful event in June.
