There will be two shows, at 7pm & 10pm, with tickets available starting at 10am today. For more information, please visit GAMH or Prader-Willi Homes.

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass has long paid tribute to its legacy acts and this year is no exception. Steve Earle will host a tribute to longstanding regulars like John Prine, Justin Townes Earle and Nancy Bechtle as well as David Olney, Jerry Jeff Walker & others who we have lost over the past few years. Look for him to lead a guitar pull with several guests on Sunday afternoon at the Banjo Stage.
