OLD-TIME MUSIC & DANCE HALL
A Festival of Bluegrass & Old-Time Music & Dance
Fri-Sun, Feb 28 to March 2, 2014, Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West, Plymouth MN
The Winter Bluegrass Weekend is a festival of bluegrass and old-time music and dance. The Deering Banjos Old-Time Music & Dance Hall is always a busy place with square dances, honky tonk dances, concerts, clogging and more on Friday from 7PM to 11PM and on Saturday from 11AM to 11PM. It is the largest of the three stage venues at the Winter Bluegrass Weekend, and much of it is dance floor. Many of the dances are taught and called by professional callers, and there are dance instruction workshops too.
Our 2014 featured performers will be Chicken Train from North Carolina.
