Seattle’s Premier Bluegrass Festival is Wintergrass
Bluegrass fans love the acoustic sound of this traditional American music genre. It brings to mind jaunty fiddles, banjo-picking, and tapping feet, plus complicated melodies that often tell stories.
Experience the roots of bluegrass as well as its new and varying modern interpretations when you attend Wintergrass in Bellevue. It’s a bluegrass festival that spans four days and includes an array of talent from all over the country.
