25th Joe Val Bluegrass Festival
February 12 - February 14, 2010
The Boston Bluegrass Union is proud to present the 25th annual Joe Val Bluegrass Festival, Presidents Day Weekend, February 12 – 14, 2010, at the Sheraton Framingham, Framingham, MA. This beloved winter tradition boasts a full weekend of top-notch bluegrass entertainment, including performances by some of the best national and regional bands, over forty master classes and workshops, the BBU’s acclaimed Academy for Kids, directed slow jams, a thriving vendor floor with a great array of bluegrass-related merchandise (including instruments, CDs, memorabilia, and more), round-the-clock picking, and more. This year also marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of venerable Boston-based roots music record label Rounder Records – a milestone that will be celebrated on Saturday night with a special evening program featuring Rounder artists exclusively. All of this without having to brave the elements or leave the cozy confines of the Sheraton Framingham!
