About the Winter Village Bluegrass Festival
January 23 – 25, 2015 @ La Tourelle in Ithaca, NY

Celebrating its 5th year, the Winter Village Bluegrass Festival continues to bring the best acts in bluegrass music to Ithaca and the Finger Lakes.  Our host, La Tourelle, loves pampering musicians and music lovers – it is a great place to spend a winter weekend.  This year, the Saturday night Big Show returns to the historic State Theatre, Ithaca’s favorite and largest music room.  We hope to see many old friends returning to Winter Village and look forward to meeting many new music lovers checking out Winter Village for the first time. Join us for an inspiring weekend of listening, playing, learning and relaxing with old and new friends.

Festival performers feature some of the most renowned bands in bluegrass and Americana music today. The Travelin’ McCourys will headline the Saturday night Big Show at the State Theatre of Ithaca and conduct an unplugged band workshop at La Tourelle on Saturday afternoon. Mr. Sun featuring Darol Anger, Joe Walsh, Grant Gordy and special guest Tony Trischka and the exciting new duo of Michael Daves & Brittany Haas will perform and teach throughout the weekend and join the McCourys for the Saturday night show at the State Theatre. Too Blue, a fine swinging bluegrass band from the New York City area, and Ithaca’s Paris Texas round out the lineup.

Tickets are now on sale at the State Theatre box office or online.  Accommodations are available at the festival host site, La Tourelle, and other fine Ithaca area hotels and B&B’s. Visit www.latourelle.com.
