Big Spring Bluegrass & BBQ
What a Day!  In spite of the rain, we came, we ate, we listened, we had a party!  You can't have a great bluegrass festival unless you have a duck!  Lucky duck, those BBQ guys were giving you the eye!

Hey, we tested the elements.  It rained but the band kept on playin'.  We just kept pushing on and eventually we won.  The rain gave up, the blue sky broke through and duck quit kicking around in the wet grass and went back to the spring stream.  We ain't quitters in Neosho!  Oh no, we ain't quitters.   Every band showed up, every musician played to their hearts content.  If you weren't there, then I don't know, what can I say.  Oh I know, You Missed It!  Well we'll swing around again next year and then you will know, rain or shine, the Big Spring Bluegrass and BBQ Festival is here to stay!


On Saturday, February 25, 2017. The City of Neosho will host a Bluegrass Promoter's Night in the Civic Center at 109 W Main.  The event will begin at 6:00 pm and proceed into the night with a bevy of bands performing. 

This event will be open to the public but there will be a limited number of tickets available.  Ticket sales will be announced February 1, 2017.

Promoters from Carl Junction, Pittsburg's Cow Creek Festival, the Owl Creek Jamboree, Anderson's Berries, Bluegrass and BBQ, of course out Big Spring Bluegrass and BBQ and local venue owners will be onsite to make contacts with the performers.  At the time of this writing, I have 14 bands wanting to tickle the strings and stir the hearts with their sweet sounds of the gentle genre.  It will be a great night and a wonderful way to promote Bluegrass in our region.

So come on down and settle in.  We got modern facilities, so you won't find yourself in a confined space with the February wind blowing through the cracks when nature calls.  The lights are sufficient and powered by a spark.  The seats are quite comfortable, we have replaced all of the orange crates and some even have some fancy church cushions.  This is a heated barn, so you won't have to stay bundled up all night. 

Look forward to seein' you and the clan on Saturday, February 25, 2017!
