FreshGrass Festival

MASS MoCA’s FreshGrass festival of progressive bluegrass and roots music is produced in collaboration with FreshGrass LLC and its sister publication, No Depression Magazine. Since 2010, the FreshGrass festival has won a reputation for hosting master musicians who are the standard-bearers of traditional bluegrass, side by side with musicians exploring the genre’s most progressive and experimental corners, all captured under the banner “great music, uprooted.” The annual FreshGrass Award — cash prizes granted across multiple bluegrass categories including banjo, fiddle, duo, songwriting, and full band — has helped launch the careers of exciting acts such as Old Salt UnionCricket Tell the Weather, and Twisted Pine.
