o Slideshow HAGERSTOWN -- While artists in the Western Maryland Blues Fest were playing in City Park on Sunday, the next generation of musicians was strutting its stuff at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. The performance came courtesy of the Williamsport High School Jazz Commanders, some of whom have been dabbling in music since they were toddlers. A total of about 150 people turned out to see noon and 2 p.m. performances by the band, and the students were excited about their exposure in the music-filled environment.

Pete Lancaster's first impression of the blues was from the vantage point of Texas Stadium. He was attending a ZZ Top concert when Mance Lipscomb, the warmup act, appeared on stage. Lipscomb, a guitarist and singer known for his musical diversity, incorporated some blues into that day's repertoire. "It changed me forever," Lancaster said. The latest result of that change will be visible this weekend. On Saturday, April 23, a "Bout with the Blues" will be held at the North American Rod and Gun Club in Hagerstown.

The faithful fans who are drawn to the truthfulness of the lyrics and mourning, wailing sounds of a bent note on a guitar talk about coming to the festival as if it's a pilgrimage of sorts. "I think I've come to every one, except maybe the first one," Ken Keebaugh said as he enjoyed the final day of music Sunday during the Family Blues Picnic at City Park.
