Manawa FFA Alumni Bluegrass Bash X

Come and enjoy a great weekend of Bluegrass music as the Manawa FFA Alumni brings you some great Wisconsin bands.

Friday night roll in to enjoy Bear Lake's  great Fish Fry and then at 8:00 Evergreen Grass Bandcranks it up from  Eau Claire Wisconsin, for a no cover charge Pre-Bash Party.


Saturday starts at 2:00 with Piper Road Spring Band from Watertown Wisconsin. This iconic band from the 70's was born into the age of rock & roll with individual backgrounds diverse as classical, cowboy, folk, blues and Dixieland. Influenced by some live performances of Doc Watson and Bill Monroe and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band the current Piper Road roster has accumulated over 100 years of experience performing together.


Around 4:30 We  have back this year the band that started the Bash off for us...Art Stevenson and High Water. Bringing you classic Bluegrass with Art and his wife Stephanie along with the hard driving mandolin playing of Bruce King and equally hard driving and spirited banjo playing of Dale Reichert. This group is one of the finest classic bluegrass groups in the area.


7:15 brings us Armchair Boogie from Stevens Point. This band takes the essence of traditional bluegrass/folk music and molds it to their own unique, youthful, energetic, and improvisational style


Wrapping up the Bash at 9:45 we have this year...Dig Deep...a four-piece hard driving string band also based out of Stevens Point Wisconsin that has in a very short time become a truly unique voice and a cornerstone of the thriving Midwest roots community.


We run a silent auction along with paddle raffles and a 50/50 raffle.
