3 Sisters Bluegrass Music Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee
In early fall, locals and in-the-know visitors gather by the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga to take part in the town’s celebrated two day concert, the 3 Sisters Bluegrass Music Festival, which combines traditional bluegrass with contemporary or "new grass," inviting artists such as Sam Bush, Del McCoury and The Devil Makes Three.
