In June’s annual summer music festival round-up I only briefly mentioned Mass MoCA’s FreshGrass bluegrass/roots festival; the outdoor event, which takes place on the grounds of the Western Massachusetts contemporary arts center September 20-22, was still being booked as Chronogram went to press. Recently, though, Mass MoCA announced the full festival roster—and it’s a stunner.

Among the world-class acts performing are Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys, the Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush, the Wood Brothers, Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell, Leftover Salmon, the Gibson Brothers, Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall, Jerry Douglas, and more. Food, workshops, and pop-up performances are promised as well. And right about now a glimpse of the bluegrass legend himself, Dr. Ralph Stanley, is in order, methinks:

FreshGrass takes place September 20-22 at Mass MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. For tickets and further details, call (413) 662-2111, ext. 1 or visit www.freshgrass.com/.

    When it comes to the dream of running off to join the circus, lucky for your kids (and your band aid supply), they don’t have to stand on their bike’s handlebars in the middle of the cul-de-sac. They can just head over to Hudson and Chatham for free Cirkus After School classes with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus!
