‘Traveling Man Bluegrass Festival next month’

The lodges of the Ninth Manhattan District will be back at German Masonic Park to host its Sixth Annual Traveling Man Bluegrass Festival, with five new acts to perform all afternoon on Sunday, June 11. The park is located at 89 Western Highway in Tappan, New York, and is owned and operated by the Ninth Manhattan, which is home to New York City’s historic German heritage lodges.

This year, the brethren are promising additional attractions, like a classic car show, vendors, Shriner clowns, and that child ID thing.

Admission: $15 at the gate, or $10 in advance here. Children 12 and under admitted free. Gates open at 11 a.m., and the music starts at 1 p.m. (Music Workshop at noon.) Lots of free parking. Food and drink, including beer and wine, for sale in the park.

The bands slated to perform are:

RJ Storm and the Old School

Blue Plate Special

Feinberg Brothers

Jim Gaudet & Railroad Boys

Pork Chop Willie

It’s always a fun time. If you don’t know bluegrass music, or think you won’t enjoy it, you’re probably wrong. Bluegrass is heard best when heard live, so check it out. Proceeds go to several charities.
