The lineup for the virtual 2021 Samantha Fish Cigar Box Guitar Festival has been announced.

Each evening of this year's iteration of the festival – which will be streamed on March 19 & 20 at – will feature an opening montage of performances from top cigar box guitar artists, with the evening then being closed out by Fish, her band, and a carousel of special guests live from the Chickie Wah Wah in New Orleans.

On the first night, Fish will be joined by Johnny Sansone, Jonathon Long, and the Dusk Brothers, while Walter “Wolfman” Washington, the Cigar Box Serenaders, and Superdownhome will play the second night of the festival.

Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, J. P. Soars, John Nickel, Steve Arvey, and Ghalia Volt will also perform.

Tickets for the 2021 Samantha Fish Cigar Box Guitar Festival are available now, with single-show and two-day livestream tickets costing $25 and $40, respectively.
