All Good Things Must Come To An End...

Thank you, for your many years of support for Rhythm on the River Blues Benefit!


Rhythm on the River Blues Benefit was created as a means of fundraising for the United Way of Columbia County. The festival originally began as a community festival, but required more oversite than the community could provide. The United Way of Columbia County was approached to provide fiscal management, and the Blues Benefit was born.

Unfortunately, in recent years, the festival was not sustainable. The cost of bringing in National and International Blues acts proved too costly when given the fact that there were already multiple festivals happening in the area; some even on the same weekend.

Perhaps in the future, we'll resurrect this festival in another venue in the county. Keep this website link and check back in the future. We'll post any updates or new dates here.
