FreshGrass | North Adams, scheduled for September, cancels its 2020 festival, with its 2021 event scheduled for September 24-26.

The FreshGrass Festival, which takes place at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts every September, welcomes a second festival to the family, to take place at the Momentary in Bentonville, Arkansas.

FreshGrass always features a diverse lineup encompassing the best in acoustic music — from traditional masters and iconic trailblazers to musical discoveries. Past performers include Brandi Carlile, Alison Brown, Béla Fleck, and Del McCoury. Living legends like Mavis Staples, the Indigo Girls, and Dwight Yoakam have performed on FreshGrass stages where Rhiannon Giddens, Jade Bird, and Ruthie Foster all met new audiences and left them captivated.

The festival is rich with original compositions, spirited contests, and spontaneous collaborations. FreshGrass is a family-friendly experience that brings its venues to joyful life with music on indoor and outdoor stages, in museum galleries, and throughout its host cities.
