From February 1-4, 2013, a group of artists who share a passion for their music and a community of like-minded fans will gather together to journey aboard a ship sailing to the Bahamas, creating the biggest ever bluegrass festival at sea. Breedlove jammers Betty and the Boy have been selected as one of the 5 groups to participate in the "Battle for the Boat." The winner of the on board battle will then receive their very own 45min set to showcase their stellar Bluegrass style! Best of luck to Betty and the Boy, we're pulling for you!
About Betty and the Boy:
Betty and the Boy defy simple categorization. Though the quintet’s string-laden melodies occasionally anchor them in the territories of folk, bluegrass, or minimalist rock, they’re more at home in the cracks in-between. It’s from these deeper, often darker, places where Betty Jaeger’s voice reaches up, takes you by the hand, and invites you along for the ride – a difficult offer to refuse.

About Mountain Song at Sea:
Mountain Song Productions and Steep Canyon Rangers are partnering with Sixthman to fill an entire luxury cruise liner with more than a dozen bluegrass, folk, acoustic artists, and YOU! The folks that produce the Mountain Song Festival are creating the biggest ever bluegrass festival at sea featuring the legendary performers you already love along with exciting new rising stars!
There’s something special that happens when a group of artists who share a passion for their music and a community of like-minded fans gather together to journey aboard one ship. Mountain Song at Sea will provide experiences that you can’t get anywhere else – shows with your favorite artists in intimate venues, spontaneous artist collaborations, jams, interactions with artists and through it all the creation of friendships and your own Mountain Song at Sea community. Artists will host Q&A sessions and other activities, like a poker tournament with Steep Canyon Rangers, beer and wine tastings, workshops, games, and more!
Mountain Song at Sea will set sail February 1-4, 2013, from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas aboard the Norwegian Sky, a luxurious ship full of all the amenities you’d expect – pools, hot tubs, a casino and music on multiple stages, around every corner.
You’ve never seen this many bluegrass fans at sea! The entire ship has been chartered for the inaugural Mountain Song at Sea festival, and it’s full of like-minded fans just like you. Every person on board will be there for one thing: to live and breathe all the amazing music for three full days!
So grab a banjo or rustle up a mandolin, dust off your bass or guitar and prepare to dive in to the greatest music festival celebrating the traditions, the legends and new evolutions of bluegrass to ever set sail!
