Event Description

The First Bi-Annual Shady Grove Flatpicking Contest is intended to draw the best Flatpickers from western Canada and beyond to a competition to showcase their prowess at this challenging guitar style. The competition is 'Bi-Annual' because it will aleternate with a Fiddle... Contest on the other years. The FBMS Executive decided to introduce these contests to further put our wonderful and intimate Shady Grove Festival on the map, make it unique and still keep it small. The competition rules will be laid out in a later post but in a nutshell it will take up the Saturday Afternoon only so it won't interfere with the rest of the festival. BTW, the festival lineup will be announced in the next week or so. Like the song says, 'Aunti tell your Uncle, Uncle tell your Granp Pa, Grand Pa tell your Grand Ma...Baby don't you wanna go..." Go to the Flatpicking Contest and tell your friends from all over Canada ...$500 and a trophy is a pretty big prize!! Go to the Shady Grove Flatpicking Contest Event page or the FBMS website for contest details.
