Our gear and other products we use • 2024 Calendar - Blueberry Jam Concert 2021! This hidden gem of a concert is something we look forward to each summer and takes place in beautiful Mabou, Cape Breton. Fuelled by incredible music, cold beers, and awesome friends, here's a little video we took over the two days! Blueberry Jam started in 2019 as an Outdoor Concert at Big Belle Farm ( a 170 year old heritage farm owned by Paul and Adele Meagher on Mabou Ridge, NS. The event, formed through a collaboration between Big Belle Farm and local born musician, Rankin MacInnis (, is a way to celebrate and promote both the wild blueberry industry of Cape Breton/Nova Scotia as well as the incredible music of the province. Find more concert information at Song in this video: Levels - Regal Beagle Band Now, in addition to the beautiful day under the sun, Blueberry Jam has added a 'Harvest Series'. The weekend series takes the music from the field to inside the barn over the Thanksgiving Long Weekend and celebrates the end of the harvest season. ---- DaveyandSky: Website • Facebook • Instagram • TikTok • Our Kit • Music • ---- Blueberry Jam 2021 | Big Belle Farm | Mabou, Cape Breton
