FreshGrass has taken root.

Over 3,500 happy, exhausted festival-goers filed out of MASS MoCA after The Del McCoury Band’s third encore performance ended FreshGrass 2013. Just three years ago the same band played at the first FreshGrass festival in front of a crowd of 400.

FreshGrass has grown from a fall gathering to a full-fledged festival. Bluegrass lovers filled our courtyards and galleries, picked in every corner of our campus, and enjoyed back-to-back performances on two stages totaling 30 hours of live music.

Enough words… here are some pictures and videos from the eventful weekend.

Mason Jar Music, a Brooklyn-based creative collective, filmed this intimate performance, along with many others, of returning FreshGrass performer Sarah Jarosz during the festival.
