Bluegrass Festival in Eureka, MO This Weekend!

Don't forget about the MABC bluegrass festival this weekend at the Holiday Inn Six Flags in Eureka, MO.  Friday night's highlights include the All Youth Fiddle, Banjo & Open Talent Competitions.  This is the only annual Youth Talent Contest for bluegrass that I know of locally.  It is my favorite of all the contests because I like to hear the youth sing and play anything and everything!

The Bluegrass Shack will be set up as vendors this weekend, so we hope you'll come by the vendor's room and say hello!  (The Bluegrass Shack in New Athens will be closed to the public this weekend, but Friday & Saturday lessons will still be held as usual there.)  If you want us to bring something in particular, you'd better call or e-mail us right away!

If you haven't joined MABC, we hope you'll consider it.  The Bluegrass Shack is not affiliated in any way with MABC, but I do manage their contests and I believe they are a fantastic local organization.  They produce a great newsletter that comes out six times a year and lists many area festivals, events and general bluegrass news.  You get discounts for all MABC events with your membership.  Check out their website at
