I Dig Bluegrass is devoted to Kentucky area artists, festivals and venues that make bluegrass music great. I love traditional bluegrass music as well as some contemporary stuff. I also get into old time traditional music. The music you will find here is wide ranging but it is all live and real.

Did you go to the Morehead Old Time Music Festival last year? How about Poppy Mountain? Have you ever been to the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Celebration? Did you know there are numerous small venues where folks play music out 'there' in Kentucky's boonies and back roads?

You can almost be there at the festival! I have traveled around to festivals and venues for the past 6 years collecting video of live music at Kentucky area festivals and venues. Select a video, go full screen and sit back. You will see a live performance often including a little joke telling, introductions, and even occasional mistakes. But that is the beauty of it. Raw live and real ~ Bluegrass Music!

I maintain a calendar of bluegrass music events in the area as well as videos and photos from bluegrass music events all over Kentucky. I try to help you to keep up with live bluegrass music entertainment and give you the opportunity to watch videos from past events.
