From the Boston Bluegrass Union—
Join the Boston Bluegrass Union and celebrate the legacy of the late Joe Val with three big days of indoor bluegrass at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel.
We have a great lineup of national and regional talent, expanded workshops, Kid’s Academy, music vendors, and round-the-clock jamming. Our 2006 event won the coveted “Event of the Year” award from the International Bluegrass Music Association.
We will have another great group of bands this year for the Joe Val Festival, including:
Jerry Douglas Presents The Earls of Leicester (IBMA Entertainer of the Year!)
Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver
Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass (IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year!)
The Becky Buller Band (IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year!)
Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen (IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year!)
Joe Mullins and The Radio Ramblers
Jeff Scroggins & Colorado
The Lonely Heartstring Band
The Surly Gentlemen
Bill and the Belles
Bluegrass Gospel Project
The Feinberg Brothers
The Korey Brodsky Band
When: February 17-19, 2017
Where: Sheraton Framingham – Framingham, MA

(“Just seven little keystrokes,” says Cousin Stan)
UPDATE: Reuben Shetler, in a comment below, advises that the full Main-Stage and Showcase-Stage schedules are now on the website, and each band’s name links to a profile of the band. Go HERE.
There is no better way to spend a cold February weekend than listening to pickers and singers in every nook and cranny of this entire hotel. Just wander around for three days and take it all in, or settle down in the Main Stage or the Showcase Stage, and relish some great music, Country Music Bluegrass Style! I’ll be there, and I hope to see all of you as well! /CL
