Diverse Festival of the Bluegrass line-up celebrates the genre

Fans of traditional, old-timey and progressive bluegrass all had something to be happy about Saturday at the 43rd Festival of the Bluegrass at the Kentucky Horse Park. The festival’s closing day served up an eclectic blend of bluegrass that included Restless Leg String Band, The 23 String Band, Town Mountain and others.

People from throughout the country will flock to the Kentucky Horse Park this weekend, not for a horse auction or race, but rather old-school bluegrass music. The Festival of the Bluegrass returns from June 9-12 for the 44th consecutive year, and features local and national bluegrass acts.
