Showtimes 1:40pm and 5:50 pm
Our fabulous Bluegrass festival is back and at an exciting new location! We're taking over Main Street at Crocker Park (Westlake) with top local and national acts for a day of jamming, great craft brews, popular food trucks, and onsite food offerings from Crocker Park's renowned restaurants. In true bluegrass style, we're also featuring a Bourbon tasting station with renowned Woodford Reserve! Performing are BoyGirl, Thor Platter, and this year TWO special headlining acts! Vickie Vaughn Band: Nominated for the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Awards Momentum award for Band of the Year, the band has earned its reputation as one of the most promising of the younger bluegrass acts. Vaughn's big voice leads this traditional five-piece band that brings their country-influenced, high-energy song-centered sound to music fans all across the US. Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper: Its no surprise that this band, led by Cleveland (yes, that's his last name!) is nominated for four 2015 International Bluegrass Music Awards that will be decided one week before our event. Cleveland is already a nine-time winner of the the Fiddler of the Year Award and is considered one of the best bluegrass musicians of his generation. THe band has earned numerous IBMA awards and tours extensively throughout the US and abroad, while achieving the number one slot on Sirius XM Bluegrass Junction's most played albums chart. The Atlanta Times says...when it comes to straight-up bluegrass, bootstompers and lonesome laments alike, Cleveland's peers are few and far between. We wish the band luck with the upcoming awards and are excited to feature them at Bluegrass Brew Bash! $20/person includes festival entry and five tasting tickets that can be used for your choice of craft beer (9oz samples) or Bourbon (1oz samples).
