Bluegrass Along the Harpeth prepares for 28th annual event in July

Bluegrass Along the Harpeth, the festival on the Franklin square featuring fiddling, folk dancing, festival food and crafts, is less than a month away.

The festival, on July 26 and 27, fills the air across the square with the sounds of guitars, banjos, mandolins, stand-up bass, and fiddle music, offering cash prizes for the best players and dancers in two days of competition.

In addition to string bands and soloists on the stage, attendees can find impromptu jam sessions all around the square, with accomplished musicians from eight to eighty eight.

For competition information, contact Robyn Durdin at nybor3381@gmail.com.

For other festival information or to participate as a sponsor or vendor, contact the longtime organizer and promoter of Bluegrass Along the Harpeth, Tommy Jackson. Contact Jackson at 615.390.3588 or by email to rtrevue@aol.com.

For those who just want to enjoy the music, it is a free event, and audience members are encouraged to bring a chair and a sun hat.
