Bluegrass music is American music, pure, honest and beautiful in it’s simplicity. It came out of the mountains of Appalachia from a rich musical heritage of Scotch/Irish immigrants and was passed down from generation to generation. Come celebrate and enjoy this great American music at Fallfest 2012. Join the West Michigan Bluegrass Music Association on September 14-16, 2012 at the Kent County Youth Fairgrounds in Lowell, Michigan for a music festival that the whole family can enjoy. We will have instrument workshops, a huge bake sale, craft and food vendors, kids activities and lots of campsite jammin’. And then there are our Bluegrass music stage acts all weekend long.
We have a number of great bands for you this year. The line-up includes many regional and local favorites. Bluegrass doesn’t get any better than these great bands. Be sure to bring lawn chairs for the great show inside our concert building. It’s Bluegrass music, come rain or shine.
Friday night we have Belle River String Band, Family Tradition, Bluegrass Express and Luke Lenhart Family & Friends to entertain you from 6:00-10:00 PM. Friday admission is just $10.00.
Saturday it’s great music from noon until 10:00 PM. There will be Bobby Hutch & Grand Ole Country, Pushin’ The Limits, Blue Town and Schlitz Creek. Saturday’s price is only $17.00 for the entire day’s events.
