Article Contributed by Musical Earth | Published on Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Cloud 9 Adventures announces the return of Strings & Sol, the annual bluegrass-centric tropical concert vacation, to the beautiful coastline in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Venturing into its eighth year, the event will take place at the beloved all-inclusive Now Sapphire and Dreams Resort & Spa from December 12-16, 2019. The live music performances are highly anticipated and coveted by guests for their uniqueness, set in a variety of intimate venues – beach main stage, poolside gazebo, and an open-air palapa – all steps away from guests’ suites and all-inclusive amenities.

The schedule will feature three shows from both Yonder Mountain String Band and Greensky Bluegrass with two shows each from Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades. Additionally, The Del McCoury Band, The Travelin’ McCourys, and The Sweet Lillies will perform one show each over the course of the four nights. Special guests Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman will join the party for collaborations and sit-ins.

Extending far beyond the stage, the Strings & Sol experience has cultivated a close-knit community of returning guests, first time attendees, artists, and staff. A multitude of casual artist interactions provide the ultimate vacation for bluegrass fans, from instrument workshops and beach jam sessions to poolside contests and theme nights. In addition to the happenings on property, guests can book off-site excursions through Strings & Sol to explore the beauty and culture of the surrounding Mayan Riviera region extending from Cancun to Tulum.  

A limited number of suites will be offered just down the beach from the main stage at Dreams Resort & Spa. Dreams Resort is well appointed, all-inclusive and located less than 0.5 mile from Now Sapphire. If staying at Dreams Resort & Spa, guests can easily connect to Now Sapphire throughout the day and night by a quick beach walk or complimentary door-to-door shuttle service. Enjoy the best of both worlds with all the action of Now Sapphire at your fingertips and a second resort full of amenities, additional dining options, and room service to add a more relaxing element to your vacation. 

Strings & Sol is again partnering with charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service and cultural connection in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. Positive Legacy’s ongoing projects in the region help bring additional educational and medical services to the local community, with hands-on opportunities for guests to get involved. Details for this year’s Day of Service will be announced in the coming months.
