Over the holidays, the Hancock family made the difficult decision to
list Runway Ranch for sale; however, Nancy, Jennifer, and the rest of
the HADBF Board are proceeding with plans for the 2015 festival on
August 14, 15 & 16. If a sale that precludes holding the 2015
festival at Runway Ranch is made, we will look for an alternate
location, but we are optimistic that the timing of the sale will allow
the 2015 festival to take place.
The bluegrass community is so fortunate to have
had the opportunity to gather and play music in such a beautiful and
well-appointed setting for the past eight years. The Hancock's
generosity with Runway Ranch has made an enormous contribution to the
development of our music community during those years. But, the music
community isn't a place. The music community is all the wonderful people
who love bluegrass and other acoustic music and support each other's
attempts to play it. Change happens but music, like friendship, endures.
Don't forget the Central Oregon Bluegrass Community Jam.
This jam typically falls on the 2nd and 4th, Thursdays of each month. All levels of musical experience and listeners welcome. Acoustic
instruments only. For more information click HERE
