Berkeley Bluegrass Festival: Free Workshops & Jams | Freight & Salvage

The Freight & Salvage celebrates the incredible talent in your own backyard with the Berkeley Bluegrass Festival. Northern California has been a bluegrass stronghold since the 1960s and the Freight is proud to continue their support of legendary local artists and up-and-coming musicians.

They’re bringing together leaders of the genre, up-and-coming artists, and music fans for three days of concerts, panel discussions, jams, free workshops, and good old-fashioned merriment to kick off the summer music festival season.
