Festival Description

This three day event features nationally recognized bluegrass music performers, a workshop, and a local comedian. The area’s finest musicians from the hot local and regional bluegrass scene, along with bluegrass music’s top acts will be on hand for an unparalleled weekend of superb acoustic music performances.  In addition to the Grand Ballroom stage shows, many artists will entertain the audience in the cozy sunken lounge providing fans with an opportunity to listen to the music of these musicians in a close, intimate setting.

The Crowne Plaza Resort’s rooms will be occupied by bluegrass fans and all of the facility’s meeting rooms will be set aside for picking and jamming.  There is a “quiet” block consisting of a few sleeping rooms which the hotel has set aside for those who wish to relax in a no-jamming zone. Contact the Crowne Plaza Resort for details regarding reserving lodging.  All tickets for the festival may be ordered online at or you may contact Milton Harkey at (828)-275-8650.
