Woohoo!  Another band confirmed for the Spring Festival 2019.  Detour had been on hiatus but is returning with a limited number of touring dates for 2019.  We are super excited that they will be at Kendallville on the Saturday and Sunday of the Memorial Day Festival.  You wont want to miss this band.

Cornfields and Crossroads are awesome and they are an Indiana band.

Yay! Can’t wait to be there and hear this awesome band!

Great band!!

Congratulations on keeping the band together!

Jeff Rose, I couldn’t tag anyone. (That “old dog, new trick” thing). Can you please forward and tag the band?

T h.g.h e banjo player in this band is phenomenal

What a great show!! How fortunate Fort Wayne is to have such a great venue to host top notch musicians like Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder!

Thanks for putting on a good festival at more than reasonable prices. That encourages jammers to come who are not as interested in the stage. Some festivals are dying because of pricing and ignoring the jam-in-the-campground element. Congrats for holding the line.

How many years has Audie Blaylock and Redline been playing your venue? We saw them there many years ago.

Good Morning. Its with much sadness that we share the news of Maggie Clouse Bilbys passing this morning,11/30, at 5:15 a.m. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

An update on our dear friend Maggie Clouse Bilby...within the past few minutes, we've received communication from Gary indicating that Maggie remains in hospice care. She is very, very heavily sedated, with her hospice team focusing on pain management. Gary has asked us to please respect his and Maggie's wishes and honor their request for "private, quiet, family time." Therefore, we're asking everyone to honor their wishes--please, no phone calls or visits at this time. Please lift the Bilby family in prayer. Thank you. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Dear friends, my buddy and partner in crime, Maggie Clouse Bilby, is not able to access her FB page from her hospital bed. The following is from her:

Trying to do an update but...I was admitted Allegiance hospital in Jackson early Saturday morning after having some several digestive bathroom issue. Theyve discovered cancer has spread. They could treat some areas but it wouldnt help in the long run. Other areas would keep on popping up. 
We had quit the trial study yesterday as those drugs caused some major mouth problems and mouth. Not helping me. Well deal with Jackson oncologists and hospice now. 
Will be putting all in Gods hands. Theyre keeping me at least 2 more days to work out a pain plan as thats the goal now

Keep us in your prayers. A dear bluegrass friend will update all when I cant as Garys not. A group techie. Thanks for your friendship and love.

Your friends
Maggie and Gary
