Kentucky Fried Pickin’

Get out your banjos, fiddles and mandolins –– it’s almost time for the third annual Kentucky Fried Pickin’ Bluegrass Jam Festival!  This free event is Owensboro’s first official indoor hotel bluegrass festival and it’s happening Thursday through Saturday, March 14-16 at the Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront. 


The festival recreates memories in which bluegrass musicians from all over the United States would play in the Executive Inn in Owensboro during their stay for the International Bluegrass Music Association Festival.  Musicians would gather all over the hotel each night after the festival concluded to jam and visit with each other!  Now, that idea is brought back to life every year as bluegrass lovers from states as far as California and Colorado come together and make memories.


Whether you’re a seasoned musician or just a fan of good music, it’s a finger pickin’ good time you don’t want to miss out on!
