Asheville, NC is one of those small citiess that always seems to have something going on, something to see, something to do. Though nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains – or perhaps because of this – it attracts all manner of artists, musicians, and craftspeople who come to visit or to live and help to imbue this scenic little town with a class and culture able to rival that of most communities twice its size!
Bluegrass First Class is part of that ambiance and, 20 years in, you can bet this festival will not only be well attended by audiences but also alive and kicking with exciting musical artists! Both international acts and hot, local bands will be on hand to get your hands a-clapping and your feet a-stomping.
Musicians will be performing on stage at the Crowne Plaza Resort’s Grand Ballroom as well as in more up-close and personal settings, such as the sunken lounge. Take look at the 2015 Bluegrass First Class roster!
