 It is official!!!!

The Rogersville Bluegrass Festival, by action of the Alabama Legislature, has been deemed the Home of the Alabama Bluegrass Music Championship in banjo, dobro, mandolin and guitar!!! Special thanks to Senator Tammy Irons and House Representative Lynn Greer for helping push thru the resolution. Thanks too, to our own local National Champion banjo player Weston Stewart whose idea a year ago has brought us to this new place. Thanks to Barry Bedingfield who has worked tirelessly to keep things moving along.

We are excitedly planning for the upcoming festival and look forward to what's ahead. Stan Nelson and Hurricane Creek will be performing Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. We welcome all jammers!!!! The bluegrass planning committee is committed to improving our shade tree area for jammers. We plan to turn the volume down and reposition the speakers so the shade tree jammers can pick and jam without the disturbance from the stage.

Have a blessed Day. Betty Maloney
