Every February in Seattle, thousands of acoustic musicians and fans gather for the three-day Wintergrass Music Festival, which is scheduled for February 25 – 28, 2016. Featuring a full lineup of old-time, bluegrass, and roots performers, Wintergrass naturally attracts recreational pickers to the festival's home in the Hyatt Regency, and many join in on impromptu jams in the corridors, suites, and corners of the hotel in between catching the festival's scheduled performances.
In addition to the concerts and the opportunities for informal jamming, Wintergrass also features over 80 instrument workshops as well as Wintergrass Intensives, which allow intermediate to advanced students to study with some of today's most sought-after instructors and performers.
Wintergrass has recently announced that Peghead Nation banjo instructor Evie Ladin will join their lineup with a clawhammer banjo intensive on Thursday, February 26. Evie will also perform on the Saturday of the festival with the Evie Ladin Band, including Keith Terry and Erik Pearson.
Other Wintergrass Intensives instructors include fiddler John Mailander (who was recently a guest on Peghead Nation's Fiddle Styles Workshop with Brittany Haas), the Punch Brothers' Noam Pikelny, members of The Steel Wheels, and many others. Watch the Wintergrass website for for updates to the lineup.
Peghead Nation is a proud Wintergrass sponsor and we look forward to meeting many of you in Seattle. Make plans to attend Wintergrass!
