FreshGrass Awards - FreshGrass Festival

FreshGrass Awards

The 2024 FreshGrass Awards submission form is open now through June 6th! We’re accepting applications in the categories of Band, Guitar, Fiddle, and Banjo.

The FreshGrass Awards celebrate and reward emerging artists who offer innovative interpretations of bluegrass and roots music traditions and take place each year at the Freshgrass Festival in North Adams, MA. With multiple categories and prizes totaling more than $20,000 cash each year — plus studio time at Compass Records for the Band winner — we’re proud that our awards are the most ambitious of their kind.
