CABIN FEVER FESTIVAL
March 21-23, 2014
Radisson Hotel, Duluth
Don't miss the newest of MBOTMA's festivals, the Cabin Fever Festival, on March 21-23, 2014 at Inn On The Lake in 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.
We'll be updating our festival information for 2014 soon. For now, you can get a taste of what the festival is like from the information below which is from last year. But don't wait to call Inn On Tha Lake at 888-668-4352 for room reservations. Tell them you have cabin fever and you want the special Minnesota Bluegrass Festival rate.
The information below is from 2013. We'll be updating it as soon as new information is available.
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
