Acoustic Cafe

My friend Steve Masterson loves music as much as anyone I know. He decided several years ago to do a music festival at his house. He started out in mid 90's...I think Norman Blake played. This is a remarkable festival that has been kept small by design.
First time visitors come for the music but upon arrival at Steve's house, they fall in love with the land. It's nestled in the hills of North Alabama between Hayden and Blount Springs and the natural beauty is stunning with large limestone rocks, wild flowers, and trees. The music area is designed to fit the lay of the land. There's not a bad seat in the house as the area in front of the stage is situated in a natural amphitheatre. The place has good feng shui as well as good Karma.
Camping is free. If you camp in a tent, you can get there and find a great spot anywhere you like. If you're in a motor home, or trailer you'll have to park in the field at the bottom of the hill. There are no hook-ups but then camping is free. There is also a shuttle that runs up and down the hill to ferry people back and forth between the stage and the camping/parking area.
Be sure to bring a blanket or chairs to sit on, but you'll need to leave your dogs at home. Steve is very mindful of safety and the environment so he prefers that you not bring glass to the festival.
This years festival will kick off on Friday May 26th with
7:00 The Kudzu String Band
8:00 The Mayhem String Band
9:00 The Red Stick Ramblers
On Saturday May 27th
1:30 The Dread Clampet Band
