The Winding Creek Music Festival is a chance to immerse yourself in the world of Bluegrass, Newgrass, slow jams and folk music. Whether you’re in the mood to sit back and listen or you’re interested in learning how to play, the festival offers something for people of all ages.
In its 11th year, the festival draws people from across the U.S. People come to camp, listen, perform and learn how to play a variety of instruments used in Bluegrass music. The festival is taking place August 19 through 22.
Throughout the festival, visitors can take advantage of workshops to learn the basics of fiddle, mandolin and banjo. There is also a workshop for children, and those who participate will have the opportunity to perform Saturday night. Also, youth that participate in the workshop will receive a complimentary pass to the festival. The workshop starts at 12:30 on Saturday, and youth are asked to show up by noon.
This year’s lineup brings artists such as Hillary Klug, Branded Bluegrass, Cornfields & Crossroads and more.
This year, the festival will have a number of food vendors and a beer and wine garden near the stage. The site offers free camping for tents and RVs, and pets are allowed for those who are camping.
The festival will run Thursday through Sunday, with ticket prices varying each day. Find more information on this year’s festival, including a full lineup of performers, workshops, ticket pricing and more at www.windingcreekbluegrass.com.
