FreshGrass, the highly anticipated festival of cutting-edge bluegrass and roots music, is making its Arkansas debut at the Momentary—a new contemporary art space that opened just last week in downtown Bentonville—on April 24–25.
The lineup includes Alison Krauss, Old Crow Medicine Show, Steep Canyon Rangers, Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan & Noam Pikelny, Alison Brown, Ruthie Foster, Flor de Toloache, Leyla McCalla, Smokey and the Mirror, and Old Salt Union, with more artists and the full schedule to be announced soon. There will be more than twenty-five bands in all, with music on indoor and outdoor stages, and throughout the space.
“We are delighted for the opportunity to bring FreshGrass to Bentonville. The Momentary is the perfect partner to expand our mission of preserving, promoting, and creating innovative grassroots music—with some serious Arkansas flair!” said Chris Wadsworth, FreshGrass executive producer. “We’ve had a great time building a lineup of musicians, some of whom are old friends, some of whom are new to FreshGrass, but all of whom are excited to be a part of our inaugural effort in Bentonville.”
Festival events also include camping, workshops, family-friendly activities, local food favorites, late-night jam sessions, and pop-up performances.
Two-day adult tickets are currently available to the public for $80, $25 for kids 7-16, and free admission for kids six and under. Momentary members are able to take advantage still of early-bird pricing of $70 on two-day adult tickets. Prices are set to increase next Thursday, March 12.
FreshGrass tickets can be purchased online here. FreshGrass is held rain or shine.
The festival is presented in collaboration with MASS MoCA, where FreshGrass is currently held annually in September.
