Bluegrass music returns to St. Paul area this winter

February 1, 2014 by  

The Winter Bluegrass Weekend is taking place in Plymouth for three days this February and March.

It is presented by the Minnesota Bluegrass Old-Time Music Association and last year’s attendance almost reached 3,000.

There should be plenty to interest Bluegrass fans at this annual event. There will be lots of concerts, dances, workshops and exhibitions; over 40 bands will be performing over the three days. The headline concert of the weekend is one by Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper. Also planned are several jam sessions, a showcase of bands and a swap meet.

This popular event is likely advertised widely in Minnesota. One way would be if organizers purchased products from St. Paul postcard printers. The postcards could be distributed through the community either through direct mail to those who have attended in the past or given to various local music clubs and music stores.

The Winter Bluegrass Weekend will take place at the Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West Hotel from February 28 until March 2. Tickets are $15 for day one, $20 for day two and $10 for day three; a three-day pass is $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Teens are admitted for half price and children aged 12 and under are admitted free. Tickets to the headline concert are $19 in advance or $20 at the door.
