Bluegrass Heritage Festival 2018

Bluegrass Heritage Festival MPAC 2018

Featuring The Special Consensus

and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band

 with special guest Downtown String Band

Join us for the 10-Year Anniversary Celebration of the Bluegrass Heritage Festival®!  We’ll have an incredible night of music by GRAMMY-nominated The Special Consensus along with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band.  The Special Consensus is a superb bluegrass outfit in a traditional vein with more than enough modern sensibilities to attract every ear.  They were the first band ever presented by the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation back on May 3, 2008, so we wanted to invite them back for our Bluegrass Heritage Festival® anniversary celebration!

Sgt. Peppers offers a new sound with innovative bluegrass interpretations of popular Beatles songs like Eleanor Rigby, Come Together, Back in the USSR, Blackbird, and many others. 

Our special guest for the evening is the Downtown String Band, a bluegrass and traditional acoustic music collaboration of Alan Tompkins, Gerald Jones, and some of their closest musical friends.

We are pleased to host this event at the McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC), the multi-purpose theater in the historic Collin County Courthouse.  The MPAC is in the center of the McKinney, Texas historic district with a variety of restaurants and boutique shops that make it the perfect destination for a Saturday afternoon and evening!  You can see a graphic diagram of the MPAC seating chart here.
