    Default Great 48 Bluegrass Jam in Bakersfield

    Tis the season to stay up way too late and jam!

    Who's going to the Great 48 (1/5/2023 - 1/8)? I'm trying to work out some travel plans from Seattle now (anyone driving up from LAX area??) but hope to be there.

    I’ll be within 200 miles of it (in Palm Springs) while it’s happening but I’ll be too occupied there to make the trip to Bakersfield. Another time, I hope.

    This is one of our favorite bluegrass festivals, but unfortunately we cannot make it for 2023. Wish we could...
