WHAT: Charm City Bluegrass Festival, winner of the 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Momentum Award for Event of the Year and 2018 Best Festival by Baltimore Magazine, invites music lovers and foodies to gather in Druid Hill Park on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 for the seventh annual celebration of bluegrass, folk and Americana with three stages, 20 bands and two days of family-friendly festivities including local food, a limited release beer from Union Brewery, artists, a kids activity area featuring animals from Irvine Nature Center, spontaneous jam sessions and more.
The dynamic musical lineup, headlined by The Bridge, Deer Tick, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Jeff Austin Band, brings national and regionally-known bluegrass artists together during the two day festival. There will also be a late night after-party Friday and Saturday at the 8×10 featuring more bluegrass music and entertainment.
