You’ll also be hearing a lot of field picking throughout the festival. We also have the Blistered Fingers Kids Academy, a free, relaxed, informative three-day music program for children for ages 6-18. The focus is how to play, sing and perform bluegrass music. Students can bring their own instruments and will commit to the three-day program. The kids all get a free T-Shirt and perform a couple of songs as a group on main stage.
This bluegrass festival takes place twice every year and brings thousands of music lovers from all over the world to Litchfield, Maine to hear banjos, fiddles, and high, lonesome harmonies.
