The 9th annual RenoFest will be held March 24-26, 2006 in Hartsville, SC. Billed as a celebration of the life and times of Don Reno, this event has included both concert performances and instrumental competitions, for banjo and guitar – as one might expect at a festival commemorating Reno’s music.
What’s new this year is a bluegrass band competition as well, open to amateur and semi-professional acts. The banjo and guitar contests are limited to 20 competitors (first come, first served), but bands wishing to enter must submit an application, with five contestants and two alternates to be selected.
