Join us for the Kansas Bluegrass Association's 30th Annual Winterfest Bluegrass Festival, Feb 22 & 23, at the lovely Marriott in Wichita KS. Performers include Grammy award winning singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tim O'Brien and Jan Fabricius, IBMA's Emerging Artist of the Year VOLUME 5, old-time band Short Round String Band, high energy bluegrass band The Baker Family, traditional and gospel favorite Spring Street, and our very own KBA Treblemakers.
Music workshops kick-off on Friday afternoon with a beginner slow jam, then continue Sat morning with a kid-friendly instrument petting zoo for all ages, a songwriting workshop with Tim O'Brien (worth the weekend pass just for this workshop!), fiddle workshop with Betse Ellis, old-time banjo workshop with Clarke Wyatt, and more! Nearly around-the-clock bluegrass AND old-time jamming at all skill levels is also included with your ticket price. Join us!
