COVENTRY – For more than 30 years, the Bluegrass Roundup at the Wrench Wranch in Coventryville has played host to hundreds of old-time Bluegrass acts from all over the country, picking their way across the U.S. Bluegrass circuit.
This Labor Day weekend, the tradition continues at the 32 annual Bluegrass Roundup beginning Friday evening and running through Sunday at the family-operated rustic venue and campground located just off State Highway 206 east of Greene, six miles west of Bainbridge.
“We’re trying to promote and maintain Bluegrass which has seen it’s share of highs and lows over the past 40 years,” said Gene Clayton, an organizer of the event.
The roundup will offer more than a dozen acts over the three days, and “field picking” – an off the cuff jam session of sorts – is not an uncommon occurrence. Families looking for a way to ride out the last official summer holiday in a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere are invited to “rough it” for the weekend at the Wrench Wranch campsites. Plenty of free parking is available as well as handicapped accessible restrooms, showers and a dumping station on premises.
