For a venue as high-concept as MASS MoCA, the idea behind FreshGrass is pretty simple: lots and lots of bluegrass music. The annual last hurrah of the contemporary art museum’s outdoor season, FreshGrass is nothing more, nothing less than a showcase of the best talent in that fast-picking genre.
This year’s headliners include the legendary Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush, Leftover Salmon, Alison Brown, Infamous Stringdusters, the Devil Makes Three, Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch, Sarah Jarosz (pictured), Darol Anger, the Wood Brothers, Jerry Douglas, Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall and a bunch more.
Plus, you’ve got all the gallery art you can handle right there.
FreshGrass Festival comes to MASS MoCA (87 Marshall St., North Adams, Mass.) Friday-Sunday (Sept. 20-22). Tickets are $18-$78. Call 413-662-2111 for more info.
