Cabin Fever Bulletin 3/18/13 1:00 PM: Having difficulty moving your hotel reservation for Cabin Fever? Try again. Both the Days Inn (218-728-5141) and the Edgewater (218-728-3601) now have room blocks set for us and they promise us the $86 room rate (there was some earlier confusion about this) as well as an extension to shuttle operation hours until 1:30 AM both nights to and from the festival hotel at Inn On Lake Superior. Coming from Canada? We hear that Canal Park Lodge (next door to festival hotel 218-279-6000) has a Canadian special rate - ask for it.

Don't miss the newest of MBOTMA's festivals, the Cabin Fever Festival, on March 22-24, 2013 on Canal Park in Duluth.
It will be another great indoor weekend of stage shows, workshops, draw bands, vendors, open mic, and all-day and late-night jam sessions.
The Cabin Fever Festival is produced by the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association (MBOTMA) and made possible in part by RELS TITLE and PIKE LAKE DENTAL.
Friday Night Live! will be back on Friday night. It all starts with an open mic in Northern Lights Ballroom in the hotel conference center. Then on Saturday we’ll have an afternoon concert from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The weekend highlight will be the Saturday Night Headline Concert from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM featuring GrassTowne from North Carolina plus The Roe Family Singers and Cousin Dad. Grasstowne is a band comprised of very well respected bluegrass veteran Alan Bibey and four of the finest young musicians in bluegrass today. This combination together is one of the hottest and energetic bands touring today!
“We’ve just finished compiling our top picks for the upcoming BEST OF 2010 year and special edition of Into the Blue and Grasstowne has firmly placed themselves in the line-up with ‘KICKIN UP DUST.’ Nicely done gentlemen!”
--Terry Herd, Bluegrass Radio Network
