A heartfelt THANK YOU to all attendees, artists, and staff who helped make the 2012 Gettysburg Bluegrass Festivals a HUGE success! We experienced world class performances from Rhonda Vincent, Dailey & Vincent, Mountain Heart and many, many others. The new stage has been extremely well received and the damp weather didn't dampen any spirits. The All Star Jam was one of the biggest ever. We've never seen so many people "jammed" into the tent. Too many outstanding moments to list. You just have to see and hear for yourself.

The May Festival line-up is sure to please any bluegrass fan! For the latest visit the official festival website:
