Beardos this year will be treated to three days of musical performances by some of Greater Cincinnati’s finest Folk/Roots practitioners (including The Tillers, Jeremy Pinnell & the 55’s, Red Beard’s Revenge and many others), as well as solid regional talent and fantastic national acts like The Fairfield Four and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper.
