Bluegrass Masters Weekend is Almost Here

Campfire music


Get ready to celebrate the North Shore Music Association’s 26th Annual Bluegrass Masters Weekend this coming Friday – Sunday, November 4-6! This is a one-of-a-kind weekend as the resort is filled with the nation’s best bluegrass players and instructors. It’s a unique mix of music, along with interactive workshops, plus a concert on Saturday night.

This year’s featured instructor is Jim Hurst from Nashville. Over the past three decades, he’s performed with artists including Holly Dun, Trisha Yearwood, Sara Evans and Missy Raines. Hurst joined Claire Lynch and the Front Porch String Band in 1995, and during that time he met Raines. The two of them formed the duet “Jim Hurst and Missy Raines” and recorded two albums that won them the International Bluegrass Music Awards for Guitar Player of the Year and Bass Player of the Year in both 2001 and 2002. Over the years, Jim has also maintained a strong solo career and taught workshops all over the country. In 2015 he was nominated for Guitar Player of the Year by IBMA. He has won numerous awards for his work.
