“Winterfest – the best bluegrass festival in the Poconos – is back once again to help warm things up after the holidays with the hum of strings and the sound of American bluegrass music! Presented in association with the Pocono Bluegrass & Folk Society, this year’s festival is full of brilliant national and local bluegrass acts and includes eight bands and more than nine hours of music – topping it all off with a special headlining appearance by The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band.
Grammy award winner and legendary bluegrass artist Peter Rowan has developed into one of the major bluegrass artists of the last 50 years while accumulating a devoted, international fan base through his continuous stream of original recordings, collaborative projects, and constant touring. Joining Rowan (guitar) in The Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band are Jody Stecher (mandolin), Keith Little (banjo), and Paul Knight (bass). The ensemble has been entertaining audiences with original songs executed in vibrant harmony.
Other artists scheduled to appear include Wilkes-Barre natives Cabinet as well as acoustic-bluegrass performers the Hickory Project. Additional artists performing on stage include Folk Spirits, Hillbilly Water, Mason Porter, Aimless Pursuit, and The Lost Ramblers.
Even more Winterfest events take place on January 29th and 31st throughout the Stroudsburg area! Please visit www.poconobluegrass.org for more information.
Come celebrate ten years of bluegrass in the ‘Burgs this January at the Sherman!”
