The third annual FreshGrass festival took place at MASS MoCA last weekend, and it was the first time that the fest bestowed the FreshGrass Award upon an up-and-coming bluegrass band. The final round of competition was held at MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center on Sunday morning (September 22) as Deadly Venoms, the Vickie Vaughn Band, Cricket Tell the Weather, Molly Tuttle, John Mailander & Ethan Jodziewicz, the Lonely Heartstring Band and Chasing Blue faced off for top honors.

When it was all over, the Brooklyn-based Cricket Tell the Weather walked off with the first FreshGrass Award, which includes $5000, a Nashville recording session at Compass Records and a slot at next year’s FreshGrass Festival.
