Blue Ox Music Festival is proud to announce its initial lineup of artists, for the 8th annual Blue Ox Music Festival, to be held the first weekend of summer, on June 23, 24, 25, 2022.

Blue Ox Music Festival welcomes back the summer pilgrimage of Bluegrass, Americana, Roots, and Folk artists, and their devoted music festival fans; returning to the tall pines and hardwoods of northern Wisconsin.

All tickets for the original show date will be valid for the new performance date. Please reach out to point of purchase to request a refund if you are unable to make the new date.

Hi folks and welcome to My Bluegrass Heart.

I think of this project as the third chapter in a trilogy which began with 1988’s Drive, and continued with Bluegrass Sessions in 1999.

A year or so back, I’d had a thought about doing some shows with Sierra Hull & Molly Tuttle, and we got together to jam. (Mostly I was thinking they’d be amazing together without me!) But, later in the recording of the album it became clear to me that I was propagating the boys club, while there were female players who were just as good. Even though I already had more than an album’s worth of music recorded, we did an awesome session with Molly, Sierra, and a couple of dudes -  Mark Schatz and Andy Leftwich - cutting three more tunes.

Join me on Sunday, September 12th at 8pm EDT to celebrate the release of my first bluegrass album in over 20 years, My Bluegrass Heart. This stream features the band's debut performance live from RockyGrass in Lyons, CO and highlights a new generation of bluegrass players including fiddlist Michael Cleveland, mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull, multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses, bassist Mark Schatz, and guitarist Bryan Sutton.
