A muddy good time at the Kingman Island Bluegrass Fest

Story and Photos By Joe Newman

The Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival didn’t let a damp day and muddy conditions get in the way. A full slate of local bands played all day long on Kingman Island, one of those hidden DC spots, tucked away on the Anacostia River, near RFK Stadium.

The festival, now in its 8th year, raises money for the Living Classrooms Foundation.
