    Not a festival, but we have a weekly old time jam here in Muscatine at the Pizza Ranch. 7:00-9:00 or so. Tunes only, but we also dabble in the Irish stuff some, which I try to stay away from since I can't do it justice the way a "real" Irish fiddler can.

    It's a fun, low-key jam. Very informal. Come and go as you please. It's hosted by Chris Foss, the maker of Songbird Dulcimers who lives here in town.

    Strawberry Point is ground zero for Iowa Bluegrass this weekend. (July 25th)

    It's too far for me, but i spoke (and jammed) with a very nice lady that is on the festival board. Kudos to her! Hope y'all have fun!

    Found out the Kalona Festival was this past weekend, not the 10th thru 12th, as mentioned in an earlier post. I would have gone to Kalona, if I hadn't been misinformed that it was the same weekend as Stratford. We have to be a bit more careful with the accuracy of the info. we share.
