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.

Featured Artists for this year's line-up include:  David Peterson & 1946, The Mark Hembree Bluegrass Band (Mark is a past member of Bill Monroe & The Bluegrass Boys), Feed The Dog, Unity the Band (Reggae Grass), The Best Westerns (Texas Swing At Its Finest), Truman's Ridge, Unclaimed Freight, Genesee Ridge, The Driftless Revelers, Miles Over Mountains, and Dig Deep.

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.
