The John Hartford Memorial Festival - Billed as "the most laid back festival in America," the Hartford Memorial Festival occurs in Bean Blossom, Indiana at the end of May. Held at the Bill Monroe Music Park and Campground, the festival features a variety of bluegrass and "newgrass" performers, fiddle and songwriting competitions, and fun for the whole family.
The John Hartford Collection of the St. Louis Mercantile Library - John Hartford is best-known for his music, but his other love was steamboats. At the age of 15, he got a job as a night watchman on the Delta Queen, and ultimately obtained his pilot's license. John developed a fine collection of books, scrapbooks, serials, ledgers, photographs, and other memorabilia related to steamboats in America. The collection was donated to the St. Louis Mercantile Library, part of the University of Missouri St. Louis library system.
