Anderson Township's Big Ash Brewing is hosting a special, socially distanced gathering this weekend that celebrates live music, great beer and giving back.
The Big Ash Blues Bash will take place on Saturday, Oct. 17 and will raise funds for The Gardner Center for Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders; funds will also support the performers.
The ticketed bash will take place in two segments — an afternoon session and an evening session. The afternoon session kicks off at noon and runs through 5 p.m. (afternoon session ticket holders are asked to exit by 5:15 p.m. to make way for evening session ticket holders), and evening session opens at 5:45 p.m. and is introduced by Alberto J. Espay, MD, MSc, FAAN, FANA of The UC Gardner Center, and continues through 11 p.m.
There are indoor and outdoor stages, and the line-up is as follows, according to the event page:
- 1:00-2:00: The BITS Band

Guests must be masked when not seated, both inside and outside of the brewery, and organizers ask that ticket-holders refrain from dancing to keep safe and socially distanced.
