Get ready for Strings & Sol, an incredible four days of sunshine and music in paradise! Now in its fifth year, Cloud 9 Productions presents this ultimate bluegrass vacation, happening December 9-13, in beautiful Puerto Morelos, Mexico at the all-inclusive Now Sapphire Resort.
This much-anticipated, sold-out event is headlined by Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, The Infamous Stringdusters, Keller & The Keels and Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, with special guests Danny Barnes & Nicki Bluhm.
The main stage is right on the beach and music will begin with a sunset show and continue until 1 a.m. with late-night sets scheduled until 2:30 a.m. Each band will play multiple sets over the four days. Add to that poolside sets, late-night jams and plenty of opportunity for random pickin’ parties, and it’s music non-stop!
The Strings & Sol experience includes a variety of workshops, games and other activities which help bring fans and artists together. Allie Kral is leading the Yarn-der Mountain Knitting Class and Greensky Bluegrass is conducting the Tropical Drink Challenge. Danny Barnes & Keller Williams are calling Tuned In Bingo, with proceeds benefitting Positive Legacy, a not-for-profit helping to create opportunities for musicians and fans to participate in humanitarian and environmental outreach projects to support local communities.
There will be additional off-site adventures including Extreme Canopy Zip Line Adventure & Cenote Swim with Greg Garrison of Leftover Salmon and the Sail & Snorkeling Adventure & Catamaran Tour with Andy Falco of The Infamous Stringdusters.
For music fans and artists alike, Strings & Sol is the perfect excuse to escape the December weather and head south-of-the-border for some bluegrass-style fun in the sun!
