Flin Flon’s first Blueberry Jam Music Gathering gets underway tonight. The Committee’s Mark Kolt says they have over 100 entertainers and about 50 different acts as some of them overlap with some people especially the musicians accompanying more than one lead singer or the like but still no matter what way you cut its lots of people. He says they’re encouraging people to remember to bring their chairs because it’s like following your folk festival format and they’re just hoping to see lots of you out there. Kolt adds the campground is full so there’s going to be about 100 people just from the camp.
The event is free and runs tonight from 6 to midnight, Saturday from 11 am to midnight and Sunday from 12 to 6 with a stage in the Flin Flon Tourist Park behind the Museum and another at the Rotary Wheel with an additional jam session at Johnny’s Social Club on Green Street Saturday night.
