Boxcar was a man who loved to listen to and play bluegrass music. He lived for it. In 1990 we lost Boxcar to cancer. He is greatly missed, but we know he would smile over this festival we hold in his honor.

Because Boxcar wanted to keep bluegrass alive and gave those around him the same desire, this bluegrass festival is held in his honor. The intent is to promote bluegrass music and give enjoyment to those who don’t often get the opportunity to hear it. Since Boxcar died of cancer, a portion of the proceeds goes to the American Cancer Society. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in America and research is essential to keep moving forward with new technology to fight this deadly disease.
