Sadie Prior strums her banjo and chats with her mom Ellen Prior while they take a break from the stage area at the "Jammin in The Hammock" 5th Annual Bluegrass Festival at Collier-Seminole State Park on Saturday. Prior has only been playing the banjo for two months and when asked why she likes to play it she says, "It makes a pretty sound." The festival features a wide variety of bluegrass musicians and groups and is taking place Saturday and Sunday.
Often, bluegrass bands are family affairs. This is true of a number of bands who played this weekend at “Jammin’ in the Hammock,” the fifth annual bluegrass festival held at Collier-Seminole Park. The Sawgrass Drifters from Bonita Springs are fronted by a married couple, and their daughter sings with them when she can.
