Celebrate Bluegrass Music With Good Friends

The Midsummer Bluegrass Music Festival is known for bringing performers who already rank or who are trending toward a rank on the elite list of Who's Who in Bluegrass. Headliners for this year’s Bluegrass Show include the Seldom Scene, The Irene Kelley Band, Henhouse Prowlers, and Kenny Stinson & Perfect Tym'n. As an added attraction, the progressive or jambase parameters of Bluegrass Music will be explored again this year with performances by Feed The Dog. West Coast Country Star, Deke Dickerson, backed by the Tinglers, has been added to the line-up, interjecting new creativity into genres of music that flourished in decades previous. (Please scroll the Schedule field on the top of this web page to find performance times and bios on the acts). All acts are subject to change and final contract.

While there will be expansive opportunity for Bluegrass Aficionados to enjoy Traditional Acoustic Bluegrass, festival goers also will hear lively, innovative tunes from a number of genres including jambase, folk, blues, Texas Swing, rock, roots, Americana, acoustic jazz, Cajun and Celtic. With a wide variety of bands you’ll definitely find some new favorites!

Don't forget to bring your bicycles or walking shoes. In between sets you may choose an excursion on the paved trail across the street from the festival grounds. There's 45 miles+ of winding trail through the beautiful Northwoods waiting for you.
