After several years of putting it off (mostly due to other conflicts), I'm attending my first BG Festival -- the MBOTMA Winter Bluegrass Weekend in Plymouth, MN on March 5-7.
Since this will be my first festival, I'm wondering what to expect. #I know there will be concerts and lots of jamming, but what else goes on there? #In particular, since I live fairly close and won't be staying at the hotel, I'm wondering if it's OK to be dragging my mandolin case around with me to all the events (Minnesota, even in early March, is too cold to leave the instrument in the car).
Is there a particular etiquette that needs to be observed when locating and then joining an on-going jam?
Any other Mandolin Cafe folks planning to be there?
