Americana Bean Jamboree AND John Hartford Memorial Fest 2022 | Review

My heart was torn when I read that the John Hartford Memorial Festival would be in Springville, Indiana, not Bean Blossom, IN at the Bill Monroe Music Park. I love my little cabin in the woods at the Bill Monroe Music Park (BMMP). It has served us well for many adventures at the John Hartford Memorial Festival (JHMF). And it was reserved and paid for from June 1-5, 2022. ‘My’ cabin has beds, an air conditioner, mini fridge, microwave and sleeps four. We know how to set up to suit our tastes and keep dry. The Main Stage and Hippy Hill Stage are each about a football field away, glimpsed through the branches and easy to hear in the comfort of our secluded shade at #4.
