NCBS San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival On Hiatus In 2014
The San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival, founded by Michael Hall in 2000 and presented by the SFBOT Committee of the Northern California Bluegrass Society each February for 14 years, will be on hiatus in 2014, but will be reorganized and return in 2015.
The hiatus is needed due to changes in leadership and grant funding sources.
The hugely-successful 10-day urban bluegrass event features numerous performances in the clubs and concert halls of San Francisco, Marin, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties. Thanks to all of the volunteers, supporters, bands, and venues who have worked hard on behalf of the festival over the years.
