Bluegrass Music has become very popular in recent years as it is heard and enjoyed by all ages. There is no alcohol or drugs allowed and this provides wholesome family entertainment. There is plenty of spaces for jamming so bring your instruments and come on over and join the fun. Lawn chairs are welcome.
