National Folk FestivalA Great American festival comes to America's "Music City." The National Folk Festival is coming to Nashville Labor Day weekend Sep 2 – 4 and we hope you can join us. "The National" is the oldest festival of its kind in the United States and features a musically diverse programming that will knock your socks off. And it's FREE.

Bluegrass music will be well represented this year by 3 time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Dale Ann Bradley. She will be on hand all weekend celebrating the release of her new album Somewhere South of Crazy.

The Country Music Hall of Fame is programming the Folklife Area of the festival which this year will feature a special workshop with Bluegrass Boys Roland White, Curtis McPeake, Bobby Hicks, and Tom Ewing.

There's also a banjo traditions demonstration with Grammy Award winner Alison Brown, Mike Sumner from Dale Ann Bradley's band and Irish legend Mick Moloney from Greenfields of America. The fiddle will be well represented too with a workshop including Michael Doucet (Beausoleil) as well as Danny Levin (Marshall Ford swing band), Athena Tergis (Greenfields of America) and Matt Combs. Other bands on hand will include Beausoleil, The Roan Mountain Hilltoppers, The Holmes Brothers and many many others.
