the shady grove festival is one of canada’s best bluegrass music festivals. it has been running annually for about 30 years and has continues to deliver on top notch entertainment and an unrivalled community for jamming. the next festival is scheduled for july 14-16th 2023.
over the years, much of the talent has come from alberta and other known canadian bluegrass bands, but many of the bands were high profile groups from usa; the likes of “the special consensus”, “dry branch fire squad”, “bluegrass etc.”, ”chris and sally jones”, “lost highway” and “jeff scroggins and colorado”. the quality and presentation of talent has always been top notch, and the volunteers make it run smooth as silk.
