Florida Bluegrass Classic Park 
Friendly Reminder from Debi & Ernie
This week, we break ground at a new site for our February Festival. This move from Waldo to Brooksville has been a true blessing.  We now have over 350 RV sites located right next to I-75 with motels and restaurants so close, you could hit them with a rock. Well, you'd have to have a strong arm but you get the picture.
Florida Classic Park is our new home and so far it has been a great experience. They have built a huge 200 ft pavilion with a new bath house. Next year they will have more 50 amp hookups and a 200x200 pavilion.
Please note, that we were hoping that the showers were done in time but they did follow through and complete the new bath house. They opted to put in more stalls for toilets instead to meet the current needs. For anyone needing to use showers, we rented extra rooms at a motel less than a mile away. The hot showers on site should be done by our next show. We are lucky to have found this place and thank our pal, Gordon Pike for discovering it for us.....
Happy Grassin and we'll see you out there on the bluegrass path..

Florida Bluegrass Classic - Brooksville, FL
Just look at all we have to offer...

Here are some reviews and reasons not to miss this show... :
"Harrell invites you into his soul rather than merely allowing you to peek through barred windows... "
David Holt, 4-time Grammy Winner:
"Michael Reno Harrell is one of those natural born Southern musicians and storytellers who is filled with wit, charm and surprises. Whether the story is in song or narrative, Michael will draw you in and entertain you, all the while making you feel right at home."
WNCW Radio:
Michael Reno Harrell has been at the forefront of WNCW's regional music scene since the late '90's. His storytelling, wit, and Americana sound make him a true treasure of the Southeast and of all the artists we hang our hat on. Michael's name has become as well-known and respected among core WNCW listeners as Guy Clark's and Robert Earl Keen's.
Song of the Mountains:
Lincoln Theatre, Marion, VA — "You are absolutely my favorite singer/songwriter. Keep it up! Thanks for doing our show!" Tim White

Mark Brinkman
Award Winning Songwriter & Performer
Mark “Brink” Brinkman has been writing and singing songs his entire life. Along with being an avid bluegrass picker, he enjoys writing new songs for the Bluegrass/Americana/Gospel and Country genres. Brink is an accomplished musician and is a musical utility hitter. You might find him sitting in playing piano, guitar, banjo, and mandolin with several bands in Central Ohio. Brink is one of the most sought after, respected and recorded songwriters in bluegrass/Americana and gospel having achieved over 130 “cuts” or recordings of his songs. In 2008 his song “She’s a Stranger In His Mind” was awarded the “Spirit Award” from “Strictly Country Magazine as the fan voted “Country Song of the Year”. The song was recorded by Carrie Hassler & Hard Rain.

“Brink’s” song “Beyond the Rain” was nominated and voted “Best Bluegrass Gospel Song 2007” at last year’s National Gospel Quartet Convention in Louisville,KY.

“Brink”, as all his friends call him, has been a Merlefest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest finalist 5 times. He won the Merlefest Gospel songwriting competition in 2009 as well as his song “The Old Coal Mine” took the 2nd spot in the bluegrass competition. His song “Bluestone Mountain” was awarded the West Virginia “Governor’s Award” for Don Rigsby’s version of this haunting song. “Brink” has conducted workshops for many songwriting associations over the years sharing his knowledge and experience. He conducts songwriting workshops at many bluegrass and other music festivals around the country along with being an instructor the past several years at the prestigious Nashcamp Songwriting Camp near Nashville in Cumberland Furnace, TN. Many notable artists have recorded and/or played “Brink’s” songs including several that have charted “Top 10” in bluegrass and gospel. The list reads like a short “who’s who” in bluegrass music and includes great artists/bands like Larry Sparks, Grasstowne, Don Rigsby, Lou Reid & Carolina, Wildfire, JD Crowe & the New South, The Kruger Brothers, Valerie Smith, Pine Mountain Railroad, Dwight McCall, Darrell Webb, and Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road among others.
