Winlock Pickers’ Fest
July 9-13 2015
The Winlock Pickers’ Fest includes instructional workshops, open
mics and plenty of pickin’ and grinnin’!
Nestled in a beautifully wooded area, Winolequa Park is conveniently
located close to Interstate 5. Less than 2 hour’s drive south of
Seattle and an hour north of Portland, this gem of a pickers’ fest
is within close driving distance of plenty of great pickers who
show up every year for it. And since the festival is put on by an
all-volunteer staff, the price of admission is remarkably inexpensive.
The Winlock Pickers’ Fest is a labor of love created by a dedicated
group of volunteers from the Washington Acoustic Music Association
(WAMA) and co-sponsored by the Winlock Park Board. WAMA hosts events
throughout the year, so we hope you’ll check the site to see the
impressive display of music events offered throughout the year.
Bands interested in being considered for the 2015 festival may
submit music samples and band press kit (including band bios and
photos) may submit them to [email protected].
Check out the rest of the site to see details about the live bands,
the workshop schedule, camping details, ticket info, links and more.

Susanville Bluegrass Festival
June 26-28, 2015
Hello Fellow Bluegrass Friends & Fans: Great News! After many inquiries,
lots of interest and concern for the Susanville Bluegrass Festival,
the Lassen County Fair Board has decided to keep the festival alive.
The festival is scheduled for June 26-28, 2015, with gates opening
for early camping/jamming Monday June 22. Once again the festival
will be held at the beautiful and scenic Lassen County Fairgrounds.
With many of the smaller festivals being cancelled we felt strongly
that with your support we would give it a try on our own. This is
a “Save the Date” reminder. Please inform both your bluegrass friends
as well as anyone who may have an interest in attending this great
little festival in the beautiful mountains of Northern California.
We are in the process of putting things together to include a solid
line-up that will be one that takes our festival to a level of respectability,
while keeping the festival at its affordable level. We have some
of the best shaded camping sites with plush green grass which make
for great jamming. Jamming is a major part of the festival and we
wish to keep it growing. The fair board feels the momentum and interest
is great enough to continue the festival, with your help we can
do just that! We ask you to “Save the Date” June 26-28, 2015 for
the Susanville Bluegrass Festival. We hope to have our lineup together
and published as soon as possible, so stay tuned and visit our website
(lassencountyfair.org) for more announcements, updates and to purchase
early-bird tickets. You can also follow us on Facebook at Susanville

James King Medical Fund
The Bluegrass Storyteller, James King, who appeared at the Mt. St. Helens Bluegrass Festival 2014, has revealed that his liver function is such that his only option is a liver transplant.
James is facing tremendous financial struggles due to being uninsured, his repeated hospital stays (since May 2014), and inability to perform a regular number of dates due to his continuing poor health. One good bit of news is that his kidneys are currently functioning well.
Recognizing James' contribution to the music he loves so much, a big night of bluegrass to raise money for James' medical expenses and funds toward a liver transplant will be December 15, 2014 in Nashville, TN. For people that cannot make it to the show in person but want to make a donation, please send check payable to "James King Medical Fund" to:
James King Medical Fund
c/o Deonia Jones
201 S. Jefferson Street
Roanoke, VA 24011
Alternately, donations can be made at any Wells Fargo - you just have to ask that funds be deposited to the "James King Medical Fund."
