The Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival in Tunbridge, VT has become one of the jewels among bluegrass festivals held in New England, if not the entire country. We have watched for the past decade as the Sawyer Family have carefully nurtured and built it from a small festival held in a town park into a major event filling the Tunbridge World's Fair Grounds with wonderful music, campers galore, hot and slow picking, and every other nicety you'd want to include in a comprehensive bluegrass festival. Running from June 26 through the 29th, the fun actually starts on Tuesday when the gates open at noon. On Wednesday evening festivities begin with an always tasty covered dish supper and then a country music dance and show featuring the Clem Hawkins Memorial Band, composed of Jenny Brook favorite BearTracks augmented by Eric Gibson on the electric guitar. The music begins on Thursday at 10:00 A.M. and continues until Sunday afternoon.

The Grass Seeds Gazebo Stage - Michelle Canning hosts the Grass Seeds Stage as a place for bands and individuals to showcase and for a band competition, the winner of which will perform on Sunday on the Main Stage. A good opportunity for local bands and those who want to be bands to try out their stuff in public. Michelle's band Michelle Canning and Cutting Edge is also in the festival lineup.
The Jenny Brook Theater returns again this year, as do last season's very popular children's activities, held near the rear of the site.
