“The String Fling is a celebration of the growing popularity of modern music inspired by traditional American roots. Bluegrass, Appalachian, and Country & Western are all influences, but this is hardly your grandfathers music. Inspired more by Jerry Garcia and Old and In The Way then by Bill Monroe (please forgive us) and by such national festivals as San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and the Austin City Limits Fest, the String Fling brings this concept to Upstate NY and the rest of the Northeast. An event where bluegrass, newgrass, jamgrass, alt. country, appalachian, singer/songwriters, string jazz, and a bunch of otherwise uncategorized stuff all blends together seamlessly.”
