Your best local concert festival buddy is returning for a second year. Yes indeed, BOB is back.

Short for Best of Bluegrass, the weeklong series of predominantly free concerts debuted in 2013 as a celebratory prelude to the 40th annual Festival of the Bluegrass. BOB proved an immediate hit in bringing patrons downtown to a variety of venues before passing the ball to the Festival of the Bluegrass over the weekend.

This year, BOB is bigger in scope with a broader performance schedule that will include free shows by such established national bluegrass acts as Steep Canyon Rangers, Town Mountain and the Lonesome River Band.
