FreshGrass Bluegrass Festival 2012
September 21 - September 23, 2012
Our second annual FreshGrass Festival turns the whole museum into nothing short of a bluegrass amusement park. Besides a collection of bands and musicians as diverse and exciting as you'll find anywhere playing on multiple stages outside and in, we'll have pop-up performances in the galleries and under the trees, film screenings, banjo workshops, instrument building for kids, great food and drink (moonshine slushies, anyone?), and so much more.
The lineup is chock-full of guitar gods and banjo gurus, traditionalists and trailblazers - artists you already love along with incredible discoveries to be made. Taken together, it's an inclusive group of performers who are both reaching back to the past and looking to the future to push this great music forward. Plus, it's all in a family friendly setting, and the biggest bargain in the festival world.
