About the Master Musicians Festival


The Master Musicians Festival endeavors each year to bring a wide variety of multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-racial music to our eclectic stage – from the blues to bluegrass, from celtic to Haitian roots, from rock 'n' roll to jazz to progressive newgrass to country to Americana and everything in between – for the best ticket price around.
