Wintergrass stages its summer fest

Seldom Scene and Hot Buttered Rum headline the Adventure Bluegrass Festival, July 28-30 at Rock Creek Campground in Stevenson, Wash. The event is produced by the same group, Acoustic Sound from Tacoma that runs the great Wintergrass festival in February.

That one is run all indoors so this is a chance to show how to run an outdoor event. The program includes band & instrument contests, a band scramble, and dances Friday and Saturday night. Tent & RV camping with hot showers is available. The festival advises bringing bikes, kayaks, kites, roller blades, hiking boots.

The summer program doesn't have quite the star power you get at Wintergrass, but it is a nifty lineup of regional and national talent. In addition to the headliners, the lineup also includes Country Current, (US Navy Bluegrass Band), Great Northern Planes, Copper Canyon Band, Fog Horn Stringband, Hakanson Family Band, Misty River, Misty Mamas & The Dwyers.
