Eleventh heaven for bluegrass day
August 12, 2013 by James
This weekend, the Annual Long Island Bluegrass Festival will be coming to Copiague, New York for the 11th time. Organized by the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA), the event features performances by some great bluegrass artists and activities like instrumental lessons.
The headlining acts on the main stage are James Reams and the Barnstormers, who will be followed by Buddy Merriam and Back Roads. A children’s stage will be holding performances from noon until after 5:00 pm. Janice Bruckner and Patricia Shih are the main performers there. There will also be a workshop stage hosting tutorials for most of the afternoon, and guests will be able to learn tips and tricks about how to play the guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and also how to master vocal harmonization.
Organizers for this event will no doubt want to advertise it, and to do so they are likely to turn to printing companies. Flyer printing services can help secure printed materials for promoters to hand out on the street or post on billboards for people to see. Distributing these materials in nearby towns like Massapequa or Hicksville is sure to increase the chance of drawing in better crowds.
The event takes place in Tanner Park and runs from noon until 7:00 pm. General admission is $15, although children who are between the ages of 8-12 will receive a reduced ticket price of $10, as will BACCA members. Children under the age of 7, and those who are disabled, can attend the event free.
