You'll be able to pick with your friends this weekend, March 16th and 17th in Downtown Owensboro. It's going to be one BIG jam session!

If you love good ole' hometown bluegrass, mountain or gospel music then you'll want to attend the Kentucky Fried Pickin’ Bluegrass Jam Festival at the Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront. It's FREE and open to the public.

Last year there were musicians from seven different states in attendance. We can't wait to see who shows up this year. It's going to be a blast!
