Festival food is available for purchase at the farm.

Visitors may bring their instruments for jamming sessions on both days at Land Between the Lakes.

“Hear some of the best old-time, string band, and bluegrass musicians in the south,” says Cindy Earls, Lead Interpreter at the Homeplace 1850s Farm. “We have local performer, songwriter, and folklorist, Nathan Blake Lynn, and fiddler, Josh Coffey, to MC this festival in the hollow. We also ask that everyone thank our sponsors–Kentucky Machine and Engineering in Cadiz, KY, and Murray State’s WKMS, who help make this event possible.”

This year’s lineup includes crowd favorites as well as newcomers:

Mandolin builder, Mike Holmes, also works his craft all weekend and offers his handmade mandolins for sale. In the event of rain, the Pickin’ Party moves to the indoor theater.

Festival and farm admission is $7.00 ages 13 and up, $5.00 ages 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under. Land Between the Lakes provides several options for overnight accommodations for those wishing to stay on the national recreation area.
