#15 -- wow!

Hard to believe this was our 15th annual! What a fabulous weekend of music and fun! The rains wrapped up on Friday afternoon and the weekend was perfect for two days of incredible music. Big thanks to everyone who made it such a success. If you missed it, we hope to see you next year for "Sweet 16."

on stage...

Both the Friday evening and Saturday lineups were filled with top-notch national, regional and local bluegrass performers. GREAT music was provided by:

+ Special Consensus - Award-winning Chicago band returned!
+ The Travelers - Super group of bluegrass veterans debuted!
+ The Kody Norris Show - Traditional sounds from RFD-TV!
+ Lonesome Meadow - Excellent family band from Ohio returned!
+ The Allegheny Drifters - Pittsburgh's very own vocal masters!
+ Border Ride - Great Ohio / PA band returned!
+ Colebrook Road - Award-winning regional band from central Pa.!
+ Hidden Drive - Popular family-based Ohio band returned!

Our buddy Bruce Mountjoy, host of WYEP-FM's long-running "Bluegrass Jam Session" radio show, and Ligonier's Jeff Bell served as emcees, both keeping the show on schedule and adding that "certain something" to the festivities (whatever that may be). First class sound (digital this year!) was once again provided by Don, Ginger, and Steve of Soaring Eagle Productions, Bedford, PA. (They got tons of compliments on the great sound from both the fans and performers.)

BIG THANKS FROM THE FIREMEN!

The festival benefits the Ligonier Township Volunteer Fire Department, Station #44. Their hard work, coupled with your support for them and the music, makes this a "win-win" for everybody. They deeply appreciate your attendance and your spreading the word about the festival.

The goal all along has been to make this an affordable, wholesome, family festival that provides a great bluegrass experience. Please support our sponsors who help make this possible.
