in Music News by

WinterWonderGrass, a bluegrass and craft brew experience, returns to Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows for its third year. WinterWonderGrass features 25 bands performing on four stages over three days. Performing against snowy mountains and star-filled California skies are headlining artists Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, The Sam Bush Band, and The Infamous Stringdusters.

Additional main stage artists include Peter Rowan, Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, The Dustbowl Revival, Everyone Orchestra featuring the WinterWonderGrass Allstars, Mandolin Orange and local Tahoe favorites, Dead Winter Carpenters. Three large heated tents, Jamboree, Pickin’ Perch and The SoapBox will flank the main outdoor stage with bluegrass artists The Lil’ Smokies, Head for the Hills, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Trout Steak Revival, Grant Farm and Jon Stickley Trio.

“Returning to Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and North Lake Tahoe each winter has quickly become a long anticipated tradition for the WinterWonderGrass family. Planting and growing the seeds of the festival in a community so richly immersed and protective of the stunning natural beauty and world renowned features fuels our inspiration. It’s the people of Lake Tahoe we yearn to revisit each winter, to catch up on stories, create new memories and continue to build the foundation of an authentic, locally focused and sustainable musical gathering,” says festival founder Scotty Stoughton.

California and Nevada craft breweries will be pouring their signature brews from 2:00 pm-5:00 pm each day in three heated beer tents.

Three-day general admission festival ticket prices start at $139 and VIP three-day tickets start at $279 for a limited time.  All three-day festival tickets include a commemorative festival beer mug, three hours of beer tastings each day and live music from 2-10 pm.  All tickets are on-sale at www.winterwondergrass.com.
