FreshGrass Tribute

Way back in 2015, we asked our pals and FreshGrass partners Alison Brown and Garry West if they might like to organize a tribute to Johnny Cash at the festival – round up some of their fellow pickers for a bluegrass set of his music on our No Depression Stage on Sunday. They cooked up The Man in Grass: a FreshGrass Tribute to Johnny Cash, and it was a hit (how could it not be?), and nice little tradition was born. In 2016 we moved it out to Joe’s Field for The Grass’d Waltz: Alison Brown & Friends Play the Music of the Band. 2017 brought Pick a Peach: Alison Brown & Friends Play the Music of the Allman Brothers, and last year was Pluckin’: a Bluegrass Tribute to the Grateful Dead. You never know who’s going to jump on stage for these joyful jam sessions. So come on out to the field as the sun starts to set on Saturday this year for some banjo-fied Creedence Clearwater Revival – it’s a uniquely FreshGrass moment and always a highlight of the weekend.
