Brown County Bluegrass FestivalGeorgetown, OH -- The Brown County Bluegrass Festival in Georgetown, Ohio has been going on for 25 years and has become a welcome stop on the annual pilgrimage of festival followers nationwide. It has hosted the top names in bluegrass as well as popular regional bands. This past year, festival promoter, Don Morgan announced that the beloved event was shutting down and that the 25th Anniversary Festival had been it’s final year.

Due to some health issues the Morgan's decided they could no longer host the Festival. Bluegrassers everywhere were dissapointed to remove this festival favorite from their summer travels.

Enter Edgar Loudermilk. Edgar has played the Brown County Bluegrass Festival countless times and knows the Morgan Family well. After viewing the sad announcement, he called Don up to ask what he could do to help and the brainstorming immediately began. Before long, between the Morgan’s and Edgar Loudermilk Music Productions, a plan was devised in an effort to save the festival. A recent and most welcome addition to the team, Sam Jam Promotions, will also prove to be a great asset in moving forward to make the festival thrive once again.

The festival has been scheduled to go on as normal, the last week in August, and the line-up has already been put together. Joining the ranks at Brown County this year will be:

  • Edgar Loudermilk Band, featuring Jeff Autry
  • Hammertowne
  • Turning Ground
  • The Moron Brothers
  • NewTown
  • Wilson Banjo Co.
  • Higher Vision
  • Dave Adkins Band
  • Bobby Hamblin & The Lawless
  • Ma Crow & The Lady Slippers
  • Big Country Bluegrass
    • Please, if you have ever attended, know someone who has, or just love bluegrass festivals, SHARE anything and everything you see about Brown County Bluegrass and let’s make this one the biggest, best year ever!
