North Georgia Winter Bluegrass Jam


The first North Georgia Winter Bluegrass Jam and festival brings an unprecedented all-star lineup of artists from across the Americana music spectrum to the banks of the Soque River. Scorching acoustic guitars, blazing banjos and the melodic friction of bows on strings should make for a warm melodic glow in the midst of the Appalachian winter in this new two-day festival that will benefit both the Soque River Watershed Association and the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.

The festival will reach a feverish crescendo Saturday night with internationally acclaimed guitar virtuoso Larry Keel taking the stage around 8 p.m., followed by the must-be-seen-to-be-believed sensory spectacle that is the Snake Oil Medicine Show. Friday night’s headliner is The Mosier Brothers Band, featuring the Rev. Jeff Mosier on banjo and Johnny Mosier on guitar.
