Stevenson's Barnstorming Bluegrass Concert and Dance this Saturday!
- The Columbia Gorge Bluegrass Festival presents the first annual Stevenson's Barnstorming Bluegrass Concert and Dance, this Saturday, April 13 in the Skamania County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall. As the Festival gets ready to celebrate its 30th anniversary this July, the one-day Barnstorming event kicks off Stevenson Bluegrass in the spring! The event opens with the Songwriter's Showcase. All who write and perform original music are invited to take their talents to the stage. Participants will be judged by the audience, and the selected song will be spotlighted on the main stage at the Festival in July. The event continues with live performances by bluegrass favorites- The Sleepy-Eyed Johns, Runaway Train, and The Bluegrass Regulators. Rounding out the show is a dance with the Buckles. The highly entertaining band from Portland performs covers that range from classic country to rock n' roll with their own honky-tonk twist. The Buckles serve up a memorable show that will bring you to your feet and have you singing and dancing the night away. The event also features a festive beer garden sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing, savory food, and plenty of jamming throughout.
