Preserving local music heritage has long been a part of Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area.

For two days, celebrate LBL’s 50th Anniversary by experiencing the best of old-time music through jamming sessions and energized performances of folk, string band, old-time fiddle, banjo, country, and bluegrass music.

The Pickin’ Party takes place 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16. Admission includes entrance to The Homeplace and is $7 ages 13 and up, $5 ages 5 – 12, and free for ages 4 and under.

Bring your banjo, guitar, fiddle, or harmonica and join in on the fun during daily open mic sessions. Throughout the day, visit with Dulcimer builders and performers Susan and Kelly Amsden, watch as Mike Holmes creates a new Mandolin, stroll through the historic buildings, fields and gardens, and talk with the 1850s farm family interpreters as they go about their daily chores.

Children’s activities will be take place throughout the weekend. Place your lawn chairs or ground blankets, coolers, and snacks under the cool shade trees. Festival foods will be available for purchase. The Pickin’ Party takes place rain or shine! In the event of rain, it will be moved to the indoor theater.
