Many families and towns in Kentucky are in great need due to the July 2022 floods. Bluegrass folks have a kinship with Kentucky, the birthplace of our beloved music.

Texas bluegrass pickers and fans are pulling together to send financial relief to those hard hit. The Southwest Bluegrass Club will pass on all funds we receive for this cause, directly to Aid Providers in the Kentucky communities.
You will receive an email receipt of your charitable donation.

Big Bend Bluegrass Association invites people from all over the Big Bend Region, and beyond, to join us at BBBA events to play or listen to music (or both!). You will meet musicians from all across our neck of Far West Texas at our events. From the occasional closet pickers to the on-stage professionals who headline shows in the region. Moreover, our goal is to share our love of bluegrass, old-time, and traditional gospel music with all who will listen. Therefore, if you are looking for any of the above, you have come to the right place! So come on out and play music with us or bring a chair and/or blanket, sit back, relax and enjoy the music!
