For the fourth year, the Freight & Salvage celebrates incredible talent with the Berkeley Bluegrass Festival, May 16-19, 2019. Programmed by Grammy-award winner Laurie Lewis and The Freight’s program director Peter Williams, Berkeley Bluegrass Festival brings together leaders of the genre, up-and-coming artists, and music fans for three days of concerts, jams, free workshops, and good old-fashioned merriment to kick off the summer music festival season.
Free workshops, jams and other activities (including a youth jam, sing-along, and family squaredance) will be offered throughout the weekend.
All shows take place at Freight & Salvage, 2020 Addison St in the Littlefield Room, our state of the art listening room, except for Gallery Stage performances which take place in the Freight & Salvage lobby before show time. Three Day Passes available (advance purchase only).
