Fertile bottom fields, rolling hills in pasture, hardwood and cedar woods, numerous streams and a 1-acre pond combine to create a beautiful farm setting.

Ranging from the David Grisman Quintet, Merl Saunders and The North Mississippi All-Stars to The John Cowan Band, Goose Creek Symphony and The Yonder Mountain String Band, the festival prides itself on the caliber and quality of the acts that are invited to play there.
