Filed under: Uncategorized — September 27, 2011 @ 12:00 am

If you don’t know bluegrass you may have an imagine in your head of the kid from Deliverance on your Direct TVthat’s not bluegrass. There are a number of great festivals showcasing the genre this time of yearwhy not get out and check one out?
Arcadia Fall Mountain Music Festival: This one’s in Missouri so if you don’t live in the south it’s an easier trip. Expect tons of bluegrass acts and all your favorite fall eats – it’s a great place to take the family and make a weekend out of it!
MagnoliaFest: How about a Florida festival? You can camp by the river then hit this one up and it’s an easy transition as it’s Americana music rather than pure bluegrass. There’ll be food and fun and you can hit up the beach when you’re done!
Georgia Fiddler’s Convention: there’s nothing more inherent to bluegrass than impressive fiddling and at the Georgia Fall Fair you’re going to see the best of the best compete. There’s great southern food and games for the kids so make it a weekend.
