These guys can play!
Northern Departure, a new bluegrass band based out of Seattle, is composed of four extremely talented young men who play with their hearts. Their intricate banjo, guitar and fiddle music will make you HAPPY. It’s hard to believe they haven’t played together for years! I listened to their music on YouTube and was blown away by their talent. So come stay at Boreas Inn March 27, 28, 29th and attend the 5th annual Long Beach Blue Grass Festival. Along with Northern Departure, Charlie Sizemore, Lee Highway, the Cascade Mountain Boys, Old Circle, Ferm Hill, Runway Train and a couple of other banjo picking, fiddling, singing, guitar playing geniuses will be lining up to entertain you. There will be 20 45- minute sets, workshops, jams and a band scramble. Sunday morning is all gospel. The entire festival is within a mile of the Inn, so if you play or sing, bring your voice, your instrument and your sweetheart and have a ball. We will take care of making your dinner reservations! This will be a weekend to remember–you will forget your troubles and tap your toes until they hurt. Eat the finest breakfast around after you snuggle down and sleep in your lofty featherbed at Boreas Inn. This event is just one of many festivals on the Long Beach Washington Peninsula. There is always something happening here! Reserve early!! Mention this blog and you will receive $25 per night discount on a two night minimum stay!
