“Bluegrass has brought more people together and made more friends than any music in the world. You meet people at festivals and renew acquaintances year after year.” That quote's by the father of bluegrass himself, Bill Monroe. His eponymous festival, happening to the 48th time this year, features 10 full days of music and 75 artists. They call this event the Mecca of Bluegrass, and they're really not kidding. The lineup is too extensive to list here, but the biggest names in contemporary bluegrass are making a stop at the fest, as they always do.
