Grounded in classic blues and the soul sounds of James Brown, Black Joe Lewis combines blues, funk, and soul with his Honeybears band. Black Joe Lewis last appeared in Nelsonville at the 2010 Nelsonville Music Festival, produced by Stuart’s Opera House.

The grandson of blues legend R.L. Burnside, Grammy-award winner Cedric Burnside honed his Hill country style while growing up surrounded by the musicians of the Mississippi Delta. Cedric Burnside performed at the 2020 Virtual Nelsonville Music Festival, and played at the 2021 Hocking Hills Music Festival, co-produced by Stuart’s Opera House and Duck Creek Log Jam.

Stuart’s Opera House is the cornerstone of the historic Public Square in Nelsonville.
