George Bluegrass Festival

Our little Pickin' Party is picking up steam: Oh, THIS is what we look forward to every year! Fine weather in a beautiful park setting with great music that invites participation. Our week-long festival is for young and old and everyone in-between! Dry Camping is FREE for a donation of any amount; we will have a food vendor available all week, and instrument and vocal workshops called "Teach 'N Learn" available on Saturday. Special stage performers include Blue Smoke, Slipshod, Brad Keeler & Trio, Convergence Zone, Hahner Family Band, Mission Mountain, Moses Willey Band, North Country and Pickled Okra!

Heads-up guitar players! We are very excited to be able to offer a special 3-hour GUITAR WORKSHOP taught on Friday, 9/20 by Steve Blanchard of Prairie Flyer and Slipshod. Cost for 3 hours of intensive flatpicking instruction is just $20 and you may preregister by mailing a check for $20 to George Community Hall, PO Box 5064 George, WA 98824.
