2016 Festival Video

Today is officially the first day of spring…and that means summer isn’t far behind.  And what does that mean?  Well, for those of us who enjoy old country & bluegrass music…festival style…it means that our favorite time of year is almost here!

In the meantime, how about a couple tunes and some photos from last year’s festival?!  Our host band, Just Passin’ Thru, performed the songs and we hope they get your toes a’tappin’!  We’re very grateful to Nadine Nichols for taking photos for us – she walked the festival grounds for 3 days, with camera in-hand, and she sure captured lots of great moments!  Thank you, Nadine!  We’ve created a video, from the songs and photos, to share with you – and hopefully it’ll give you a healthy dose of “bluegrass fever”!  Click HERE to watch the video!

We celebrate our 10th anniversary this year and we hope you’ll be able to come and join in the fun!  There’s nothing quite like LIVE music, whether it be at a stage show, or out in the field.  There will be 11 fantastic bands on our stage this year and the shows go until 10pm each night.  Field pickin’ is encouraged, so if you play an instrument, bring it along with you and join in a pickin’ circle!  If you sing, choose a few songs you’d like to do and come sing ’em loud & proud!  If you don’t care to pick or sing, no problem, come and enjoy all the music that’s just waiting for you!  If you get hungry, not to worry…we have a great cookshack onsite, with lots of delicious and reasonably priced festival fare!  Have I mentioned that the homemade french fries are a must have…?!
