The Freshgrass Festival
September 20-22, 2019 • North Adams, MA
The FreshGrass Festival at MASS MoCA is a wonderland of traditional and cutting-edge bluegrass and roots music, tucked away in a 19th-century factory-turned-21st-century museum in the Berkshire mountains of northwestern Massachusetts. An engaging and participatory event, the family-friendly FreshGrass Festival features the brightest talents in roots music performing on four stages, as well as in museum galleries, brick-lined courtyards, and grassy fields.
Each year’s lineup features guitar [heroes?] and banjo gurus, traditionalists and trailblazers — artists you already know and love, along with new FreshGrass discoveries.
Plus, the festival offers our Composition Commission and Freshscores premiers, the Freshgrass awards competitions, workshops, kids activities and great food.
MASS MoCA is one of the world’s premier centers for making, displaying, and sharing the best contemporary art. The museum’s vast galleries and multiplicity of
stages — both inside and out — offer artists unprecedented opportunities to make and present large-scale sculpture, inventive theater, and new musical ideas.
The annual FreshGrass Festival takes place each September in North Adams, MA. More information and ticket sales are available at www.freshgrass.com.
