The High & Dry Bluegrass Festival planning board regrets to announce there will be no 2016 High & Dry Bluegrass Festival. Although several people have stepped forward with suggestions for moving the festival to other locations, the current planning board lacks the capacity to create the High & Dry experience in a location other than Runway Ranch. The High & Dry Bluegrass Festival 501c3 Corporation will be maintained while the festival board considers future directions for the High & Dry spirit and mission.
The nine High & Dry Bluegrass Festivals at Runway Ranch were times of extraordinary community effort which, combined with the vision and generosity of the Hancock family, produced nine fabulous weekends of entertainment, camaraderie, and music. We are grateful to all who came-- those who served as volunteers, those who contributed their musical talent on stage or in the campground, and those who came simply to listen and enjoy.
Sincerely,The High & Dry Bluegrass Festival Board of Directors
Everyone that attended and participated in last years 2015 High and Dry Festival deserves a heartfelt "Thank You
without you this would not have been one of the best Bluegrass weekends
of the year. High and Dry Bluegrass Festival has been supported in part by
local businesses and interested citizens who share our_vision
to assure that this American classic music is available to today’s generation and to future generations.
