2012 Boston Bluegrass Union “HERITAGE AWARD” for the Music Industry
The awards are presented each year by the BBU to honor those who have made substantial contributions to furthering bluegrass in New England…The Crooker Mulligan Family, page
Bringing National Bluegrass Artists to Brunswick, Maine for Over 30 Years – In 1979, Pati Crooker Mulligan presented the first Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival over Labor Day weekend at Thomas Point Beach Park—the seaside recreation area outside of Brunswick, Maine that her parents Harry and Marion Crooker purchased in 1956. Through 2008, price
the Labor Day Thomas Point festival consistently featured a range of established and upcoming talent in a relaxing beachside atmosphere, with ample camping and ‘round the clock jamming. The beloved festival concluded in 2008 and sealed a selection of memorabilia in two time capsules buried under the famous TPB four-faced clock, to be opened in 2038 (30 years).
After three years of bluegrass absence in mid-coast Maine, Pati, along with her son Mike Mulligan, felt the need to resurrect the music and in 2011 introduced the “Bluegrass Special”, as a tribute to “Family, Friends and Frolic” and dedicated to the Park Founders Harry and Marion Crooker. The return marks a stunning affirmation of the Crooker Mulligan family’s tireless dedication to presenting bluegrass music to New England audiences for over three decades. The festival continues its proud return in 2012. – February 2012
