Collier is an award-winning saxophonist and boasts six albums on streaming services dating back to 2014. The Chris Bell Band, Donny Burns and the 3rd Degree, and Sidewinder are all based in Central Pennsylvania.
Tickets to the festival will run folks $20, and they can be purchased online ahead of the event. Children under the age of 12, meanwhile, can enter for free.
