Special guest for the evening: Al Hawkes!

The 317 Pickers are a group of young American Roots players from the 317 Main music school. Studying with the master teachers at 317, these young people knock our socks off and bring the house down every year. We cannot wait to see what they have for us this year!

The Grassholes say they are a little bit bluegrass, a little bit punk, a little bit country, and a little bit rock. We think they are all that and more!
Heather Kahill, fiddle, vocals; Sam Pfeifle, guitar, vocals; Jake Henry, mandolin, vocals; Field Rider, banjo, harmonica; Dan Pierce, bass, vocals

Jerks of Grass are a high-energy bluegrass quartet from Portland, ME. Gathered around one microphone in the traditional style, with one foot in traditional and the other in progressive roots music, over the past decade New England’s own Jerks of Grass have become a formidable purveyor of their own brand of bluegrass music.
Melissa Bragdon – fiddle, vocals; Kris Day – bass, guitar, vocals; Carter Logan – 5-string banjo, dobro, guitar, vocals; Jason Phelps – guitar, mandolin, vocals.
