We normally would just be gathering for workshops about now. But guess what - we've decided to go virtual with Fossil workshops this year! Stay tuned to register for a free workshop with the 2020 performers including guitar, banjo, mandolin, songwriting, bluegrass singing and bass.
But wait - there is more - For the rest of the summer will be posting a different kind of virtual festival with videos from the 2020 Festival performers and cool stuff from 20 years of Fossil festival history.
Only a Few Months Left
