The Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival will run from August 7 – August 9 at its new home on the Hebron Lions Fairgrounds in Hebron, CT. Boasting a strong lineup and Roger Moss’s well-known artistic and creative wizardry this 2010 IBMA Event of the Year deserves strong support and will be well worth it. It’s a comprehensive festival with all the bells and whistles in an ideal new setting. Easy to get to and a fine event.

Tug Hill is a small, family oriented bluegras festival just west of New York’s Adirondack Park and south of Lake Ontario. The area is renowned for its heavy winter snowfall, very popular among snowmobilers. The lineup is a good one, featuring national and regional bands. Check it out!

Strawberry Park is under new ownership after several years in receivership. The new owners know RV parks, but not bluegrass. The festival was something of a lineup mess, but there’s hope in the future as management listens and wants to learn. My take on the first two days is up on my blog. Surprise band of the festival – The South Carolina Broadcasters – a wonderful old-time band.
