East Anglian Bluegrass Festival
The festival was founded by John Pearman and started out in Bassingbourn, just up the road from Steeple Morden. John and Phill Morley ran the festival there for a few years and then John decided to move to his home village of Steeple Morden. It has thrived ever since. John sadly died but asked Phil to continue the festival with Richard Buchta. Richard Lee and Chris Whittington joined a few years later.
Over the years we have had the privilege of hosting bands touring from the USA, and we continue to feature American Bluegrass bands whenever possible. We have also enjoyed some truly great British and European Bluegrass bands as well.
The festival is a non-profit event and run by volunteers. Much of the money made by the festival has been given either to Cancer Research or to the British Heart Foundation. We also donate some funds to the Steeple Morden village church and village hall redevelopment fund. Giving back to the community that supports us.
