Where, much like the farmers of the region at harvest time, artists bring their skillfully crafted and time-tested songs to stage for consumption. A festival that is more about the stories and the people behind the sounds than it is about bright lights and large crowds.

We will have guitars, harmonicas, guys with beards.... and there will be banjos.   This festival isn't for everyone, but it could be just the thing for you! $32.50 pre-sale/$40 at the gate.  Duck Creek Camping and Outdoor Events Area, adjacent to Lake Logan State Park, Logan.  For detailed schedule, tickets and directions visit http://www.duckcreeklogjam.com/
