2010 Everglades Bluegrass Festival

This weekend (February 25-28) we will be covering the 2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival for Wine-compass.com and while searching for music options in the area, discovered that the 2010 Everglades Bluegrass Festival will be held over the same period. The festival is sponsored by the South Florida Bluegrass Association and is held at Haulover Park in north Miami Beach. Tickets range from $20 to $45 depending on whether a single day or entire weekend ticket is purchased. The lineup consists of local and national talent - particularly the headliner - Three time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Dale Ann Bradley. Then there's Junior Sisk, 2009 IBMA Guitar Player of the Year Josh Williams Band, the Jackson Family Band: Lonesome Meadow, and James Rogers. Hopefully we can steal away from the wine and spirits to listen to some home grown music.

We were shocked to find honest to goodness bluegrass music in South Florida. We saw the blurb on the TV things to do. My father-in- law hails from Virginia, proclaimed this the real deal. Hope to see more in the future
