In case you missed MayFair 2014

We had a great time on Memorial Day playing at MayFair Festival of the Arts down at the Allentown Fairgrounds.  Loads of great food and plenty of great people all looking to wrap up their holiday weekend with some sun (their was plenty), fun (even more) and good music.  We were very happy to be asked to close out the Discovery stage with a two hour show.  In case you missed it, here are some pics and a video of  our show so you can pretend you were there next time you see us!  Thanks as always for listening.

Welcome to the New Website

Thanks for being patient these past few weeks while we worked on updating the website.  We hope the new format makes it easier to stay on top of the who, what, when and where of Blackwater. (We’re not going to try to tackle “Why”!).  We’ve added lots of content including some new videos from our latest show at Godfrey Daniels.  If you have photos or video of us through the years, send it on over and we’ll put it up on the site.  Enjoy your visit to and as always, Thanks For Listening!
