Black Hills Bluegrass Festival is in full swing

Posted:
People who love bluegrass music gathered at the 34th Annual Black Hills Bluegrass Festival near Sturgis.
 
 Bluegrass is Americana music made up of fiddles, banjos, mandolins, guitars, and bass. Other acoustic string instruments can also be played.
Bands from all over, including North Carolina, Colorado, and North Dakota performed.

Besides performances, this morning there were workshops where musicians demonstrated what they do and then answered questions from the audience. Organizers say the music didn't stop after the performances.
 
"Picking goes into the night. You will have people from every walk of life, every location, come together play a little music together. That's what they love," said Cathy Kjar, a member of the Black Hills Bluegrass Association.
 
The festival started on Friday and goes until Sunday. There is a gospel music show on Sunday morning.
