Bring your instruments- Workshops & Jam Tents-

Possibly the best part of a bluegrass festival is hearing the sound of five string instruments from every corner of the festival grounds- pickers gathered tight under a tent and around campfires, taking turns playing and singing old bluegrass tunes. Music at the Mills encourages pickers to bring their instruments and have a good time. Along with the jam tents we will have set up, we're also offering some workshops that you'll want to be sure to get in on! Here's a schedule:

  • 3-4pm- Mandolin Jam with Jamie Renfro
  • 4-5pm- EzString Workshop with Travis Tucker
