Cabot Trail Bluegrass Folk Festival

The focus for the first annual Cabot Trail Bluegrass Folk Festival is to collect an interactive community of passionate musicians and music lovers alike who will be encouraged to participate in showcases, workshops, jam bands & instrumental clinics.

The open and inviting atmosphere at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort will allow bluegrass and traditional musicians in all stages of musical ability to take part in a hands-on collective effort to play, learn, teach and grow.

In addition to 3 Main stage daily acts,  players will be given the opportunity to form a band with various other Bluegrass/Folk enthusiasts,  jam out 3-5 numbers and depending on their comfort level and will then have the choice to perform on either the main stage or side stage.

Chalet, Lodge & Camping accommodations will be available on site here at Cabot Shores. Tickets will go on sale in April (more detail to follow).
