ANNOUNCING THE INAUGURAL CHARM CITY FOLK AND BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL



The festival, being held at Union Craft Brewing, features renowned pickers Tim O’Brien and Tony Trischka alongside Cris Jacobs and Baltimore’s best acoustic acts.



Baltimore Management Agency and Union Craft Brewing are proud to announce the inaugural Charm City Folk and Bluegrass Festival, a new Baltimore music festival featuring music with a rich history in the Appalachian region. Anchored by multi-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien and banjo master Tony Trischka, the festival will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at Union Craft Brewing in Woodbury, Baltimore.



Charm City can trace its bluegrass roots back to the 1930s, when Southern Appalachian musicians began migrating to Baltimore seeking work. The music they brought with them made Baltimore a bluegrass haven in the 1950s and 1960s. The first bluegrass band to play Carnegie Hall was from Baltimore, folk revivalists New Lost City Ramblers were founded by a Baltimore musician, and the legendary Del McCoury got his big break after meeting bluegrass godfather Bill Monroe in Baltimore.



The festival features musicians who are keeping this deep musical tradition alive. Baltimore’s own Cris Jacobs, who made a name for himself as the singer and guitarist of The Bridge, will debut his new bluegrass band, Cris Jacobs and The Union Men. Additional performers from the Baltimore-area will be announced soon.



The outdoor festival will feature local food and craft vendors, and Union Craft Brewing’s award-winning beer. Tickets are on sale now at www.eventbrite.com/event/4876444577 for the early bird prices of $25 for general admission and $65 for VIP. Prices will increase on March 1.



Festival founders have launched an Indiegogo campaign (www.indiegogo.com/Charmcitybluegrassfes­t) to help raise funds for the festival. Donations from $5 to $1,000 come with perks such as discounted tickets, VIP packages, photo prints, event t-shirts, promotional banners and more.

A lot of folks I know are going. Bud and I will be there and we'll be running the picking circles. So if you come, make sure to bring an instrument!!

Tony has also come up with a great idea of an "Instrument Check In" a place where you can leave your instrument under a watchful eye and not have to lug it around while you enjoy the event. Although we can't accept liability for your instrument, I think it is safe to say thing here are pretty secure. There might be a small fee to compensate those who take on this task if we get all the details worked out.
Overall it's a great idea and will be checkin' mine in while I take a moment to enjoy the festivities!

I'm going, and I can help with picking circles or instrument check-in, if you all need it.

Because of legalities we will not be doing an instrument check in.
We just aren't set up that well to do it this year. Maybe next!

Hey you all,

wondering what your all doing to get there?

Living down here near BWI is nice, but the trains will take an hour for me to get there.

Anyone down around me car pooling and/or where can I park if I drive?
