How Raleigh got its bluegrass festival, and how it intends to keep it

How Raleigh got its bluegrass festival, and how it intends to keep it | Acoustic Guitars and Bluegrass | Scoop.it

"We saw this as the opportunity we'd been talking about—an event that can attract a new spotlight to the area and give us a shot at showing at least one piece of the larger puzzle of the great music that's being made here."

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Less expensive places to stay and eat near the action sure helps, plus late night buses ...to get around sure do help!

On Friday the World of Bluegrass becomes Wide Open Bluegrass, once known as Fan Fest, but for the World of Bluegrass in 2013, much more. Using the entire downtown area as a venue, activities took place on two major stages, the Red Hat Amphitheater seating nearly 6000 people and a large ballroom in the Convention Center. Most remarkable, however was the street fair taking place along Fayetville Street, with free bluegrass shows from several stages and vendors, food, and more along the street. Thousands of people were introduced to bluegrass in this remarkable day.
