The Second Annual



The 3rd Annual Virtual North Bay Bluegrass Festival will take place in various venues in and around Marin and Sonoma Counties from Wednesday, January 25, through Saturday, February 11, 2006. With the original spirit of the San Francisco Bluegrass and Old-Time Festival (SFBOTF) in mind, Carltone Music pulled together this festival from shows that were mostly already on the books. There will be concerts and jams, and at most of the shows there are no age restrictions. Some of the highlights in January are John Reischman & The Jaybirds headlining and Cliff & Julia Landis opening at Sweetwater in Mill Valley on the 25th, Dr. Elmo & Wild Blue at Murphy's in the town of Sonoma on the 28th, Rita Hosking and Cousin Jack at Murphy's on the 29th, The Dry Branch Fire Squad at the Sausalito Presbyterian Church on the 29th, and Peter Rowan & Keystone Crossing at The Larkspur Cafe Theatre in Larkspur on February 3rd.

The venues included are Sweetwater, Murphy's Irish Pub, Mystic Theatre, Rancho Nicasio, Dance Palace, Point Reyes Station House, Café Amsterdam, Willowbrook Ale House, Coffee Catz, Marin Coffee Roasters, The Rose Pub, Bagley's Marketplace, and The Iron Springs Brewery.
