The Virginia Folklife Program will once again partner with Shepherds Ford Productions as a supporter of Watermelon Park Festival. Watermelon Park was the site of the nation’s first bluegrass festival in 1960. After years of hiatus, the festival was revived sixteen years ago and features some of the finest in bluegrass and beyond. This year’s lineup is impressive including the Travelin’ McCourys, Tim O’Brien Band, and Cedric Watson. The Legendary Ingramettes will once again throw down during a morning’s gospel set sponsored by the Virginia Folklife Program.
Tickets are now on sale.
