Kids On Stage Ready To Play The Main Stage At The Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival

Kids On Stage is ready to play the Main Stage at the August 10-13 Good Old Fashioned Bluegrass Festival at the San Benito County Historical Park in Tres Pinos (7 miles south of Hollister). All performers under age 18 are welcome to join in!

Betsy Riger (AJ Lee’s mother), who has organized numerous performances with children, will run the program. Come on down and join us! Here is the plan.

From Betsy Riger:

The GOF is rounding the bend for all festival goers with children! Just a couple of words to help make the Kids On Stage portion of the event go smoothly:

First and most important, please take note of the schedule for rehearsals. To avoid any conflicts for the show, know that if your child is not present for AT LEAST, the Saturday rehearsals, they will not be in the presentation on Sunday. It is a time thing; there is only so much music that can be made for that short 45-50 minute allotment. Our young performers will benefit the most if they can be at all the rehreasals. IF your child can only make the Saturday rehearsals, please let us know in advance.

If you have any questions, I can be easily reached at my personal e-mail:   (Betsy Riger) rigerb (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Second, be sure that your child has a playable instrument and that it is TUNED before arriving into the camp. If you do not have a tuner, borrow one please. (They also need to KNOW the words to the song if they are singing)


Can’t wait to see you at the festival!

Betsy Riger, Director
