The West Michigan Bluegrass Music Association   Our FallFest Camp & Jam was a great weekend!   We had upwards of 20 RV units who reserved sites for the event, as well as day-visitors and even seasonal site campers who discovered they enjoy Bluegrass!  Special thanks to Out of the Blue Bluegrass for their generosity in both performing a number of great music sets, and as a backing  band for those who graced the stage in our Open Microphone sessions!  Dave Conley Sr., Dave Jr, Jeff Lawless, George Laker, and Ted Geldhof - a huge tip of the hat to you for your musicianship and staunch support of WMBMA!

 

 

FallFest Camp & Jam was held September 15 & 16, 2017, at the Baldwin Oaks Campground, Hudsonville, MI

As mentioned above, our 2017 FallFest Camp & Jam was a blast!   We enjoyed beautiful weather, and the music generated a lot of interest from among the campers at Baldwin Oaks - including many who weren't part of our own group of 20 or so RV units who'd made reservations for the event!   Some attendees (wearing WMBMA attire!) on a trip to the local farm market in Hudsonville Saturday morning reported a number of folks asked about or mentioned the Camp & Jam - including local residents who'd taken in Friday night's music and were excited about it.  Thanks again to Baldwin Oaks Campground for their exceptional attentiveness in hosting the event, and to everyone who camped, jammed, stepped out on stage to sing and play, as well as those who stopped by for the the day or evening.  And also to those who couldn't participate, but still 'spread the word!'   We couldn't do it without all of you!   

WMBMA activities are supported in part by the Lowell Community Foundation, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant Program, administered by LowellArts.   

Thanks to all the GREAT acts, WMBMA members, volunteers and bluegrass fans who make these events such a success!
