in Effingham, IL.
The Third Annual
The planning sessions have begun. We'll decide on dates, then round up the best acts we can find, and we'll let you know as soon as we do!
One of the few true American musical forms, bluegrass - that high, lonesome sound created by Bill Monroe over 50 years ago - has steadily gained in popularity over the years, and for good reason. It's natural. It's organic.
We are proud to present a few of the finest bluegrass acts to be found anywhere. Three days of amazing picking, beautiful bowing and soaring vocal harmonies, in a beautiful outdoor setting - we can't think of a more harmonious way to bring the summer to a close!
Schedule subject to change without notice.
Tickets will be available soon!
Don't forget to
bring a few...
