    ROCKLAND — Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 North Atlantic Blues Festival slated to be held in mid-July in Rockland has been canceled. 

    “This is something that we gave alot of thought and decided that this is the right thing to do,” said Paul Benjamin, who co-produces the annual music festival. 

    The festival looks forward to returning in 2021 on Saturday, July 10 and Sunday, July 11. 

    “We will have the same artists playing the festival that were booked for this year,” Benjamin said of the 2021 festival. “All ticket holders will be getting an email from us in the next day or so giving you options on your tickets.”
