“Florida has a large interest in Bluegrass music, and we are supporting that by featuring Florida-based, neo-traditional Bluegrass artist, The Wandering Hours. It’s going to be a great show,” added Normoyle.

General admission tickets are available online and cost $10 per person. On the day of the event, general admission tickets will be sold at the gate for $15.
