Ski Lone Peak by day, boogie to bluegrass at night. The fifth annual Big Sky Big Grass Festival returns to Big Sky Resort Feb. 18-20.

The Big Sky Big Grass celebrates American Music with the acoustic sounds of bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana. The music heats up the beat for a lively President's Day Weekend bash.

Four venues bounce to bluegrass tunes at Big Sky during the Festival. The headliner concert, which takes place in the Missouri Ballroom in the Yellowstone Conference Center, launches the event Feb. 18 with the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, Grammy award winner and five-time Grammy nominee. Crooked Still and the Emmitt Nershi Band open for the concert.

Multiple concerts take place Feb. 18-20 in the Carabiner Lounge, Talus Room in The Summit, and Whiskey Jack's. Featured bands include the Infamous Stingdusters and Great American Taxi. Regional groups, including Two Bit Stringband, Bluebird Sky, Eight Party Line, and Random Canyon Growlers, round out this year's line-up.

Some performances are free; others require tickets. Tickets are available for single shows at $15-25. A $55 ticket gains admission to all events.

Concerts run daily 3:30 p.m. through 1:30 a.m. Call the resort to purchase tickets. Ski and stay packages are available.
