A signature element of The MACC has been Classic Performances by bluegrass and country music greats on two or three nights of the event. This year, there will be attractive Classic Performances on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings to close the day. Each event is scheduled to begin sometime after 10:00 PM and may continue for quite some time. In these performances, groups of musicians who do not customarily play together as a touring or recording band perform special selections or create new combinations. These are always exciting performances.

In a lineup traditionally packed with dynamite talent, these four bands will easily fit in and delight people previously unfamiliar with their work. The remainder of this year's MACC lineup is so strong, diverse, and attractive that there isn't room to highlight specific bands. From the opening at 1:30 on Wednesday with Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out through to the closing MACC Opry around midnight on Saturday, there isn't a band appearing that won't appeal to a large portion of the audience, while there's sufficient variety to assure something for everyone.
