“A great Saturday Night!”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have been here several times and it is a great night! Admission is $5 and well worth it as the bands begin at 7:30, doors at 6:30 and go until about 11:30. (If you go for their Christmas show you want to get there closer to 6:30 than 7:30 but most nights it isn't too crowded.) There is a half hour intermission around 9:30 and they offer a snack bar with hot dogs, cakes and pies but the main attraction is the music. The bands are always different but they all play a variety of bluegrass, and country music. Everything is not for profit and the bands play for the fun of it so there is a lot of joking and fun on the stage as well as people in the audience singing along or blowing train whistles (where appropriate). Some bands are better than others of course but you can tell everyone is there to have a good time. I recommend bringing some flat pillows or seat cushions as the chairs can be rather uncomfortable.

“Toe tapping fun”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

This is the best musical value you can get in the area. If you like truly made in America music then this is the blue grass venue for you. There's as much fun outside as there is inside during the summer and a must do if you are in the area.

“a great night out”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

if you love live acoustic music and variety, this is an excellent choice that won't break your pocketbook. We stayed the whole 4 hours listening to an array of bands..each one entertaining and excellent in their own way. You can't go wrong with this one.
