Featuring Bay Area local legends and talents Mary Gibbons (guitar), Martha Hawthorne (bass), Amy Scher (fiddle), Hailey Pexton (mandolin) and The Handsome Ladies' own, Yennie Brecheisen (banjo), the evening is sure to be one for the ages.
We're pleased to announce that the following members of our broader bluegrass community have been selected to perform in our variety showcase:

The Good Old Fashioned has been held each summer since 1994. It features three wonderful days of California bands on the main stage, as well as hot campground pickers on the side stage between main acts. The GOF is also legendary among festival fans for both the quality and quantity of campground jamming.
The festival takes place on the second weekend in August at San Benito County Historical Park, just south of Hollister. Tickets here.
It’s almost time for the second annual Berkeley Bluegrass Festival. Three days and nights of concerts, jams, free workshops, student performances, and an all around good time.

Every Mother's Day Weekend this quiet town's population leaps from a mere 18 to over a thousand bluegrass pickers, pluckers and fun-loving fans. For nearly two decades music fans have savored the natural beauty and peaceful ambiance of the Parkfield Bluegrass Festival. Nature's soothing sights and sounds combine with the soulful, high lonesome sound of bluegrass music for an experience that is unique to say the least.
