    The founders and organizers of Country Jam USA in Eau Claire, Wisconsin have launched the Blue Ox Music Festival, a premiere three-day outdoor music festival celebrating the best in bluegrass, roots and Americana.

    Blue Ox will take place at Whispering Pines Campground in Eau Claire, Wisconsin's historic Chippewa Valley, this June 11 through 13, 2015 at 5024 Crescent Avenue, Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

    Featuring some of the country's leading and emerging artists, Blue Ox is co-curated by the Twin Cities' own award-winning modern American string band Pert Near Sandstone, which will perform twice throughout the weekend.
