About Us

The Bluegrass Shack is located in New Athens, Illinois, near the Kaskaskia River. We're in a very small town with no fast food restaurants and no stoplights! However, we do have several nice, family restaurants and a marina, and we host jam sessions, workshops, groups classes, and even house concerts from time to time.

We specialize in acoustic instruments and accessories for bluegrass and folk musicians. We hope that you'll find just what you're looking for here. Our site is constantly being updated, so keep checking back. If there is something in particular that you are looking for, feel free to contact us. We also have a blog that you might want to visit. It has all kinds of information about our store, instrument repair, bluegrass music in general, lessons, personal experiences, etc.

Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday, open from 1:00 - 7:00 p.m. CST, and Saturdays from 10:00 - 4:00 p.m. CST. Please e-mail or call us first at 618-475-3678 before making the drive here. You may also e-mail or call us for a special appointment if you would like to plan your visit ahead of time or for hours outside of our normal business hours.

We have a complete workshop, with on-site repair for most acoustic instruments. If you call ahead to schedule an appointment, sometimes we are able to repair things while you wait.
