About NCBS

The Northern California Bluegrass Society is a non-profit organization that exists to promote bluegrass music in northern California. The NCBS is member supported and run by volunteers. Its operations are overseen by the board of directors, also volunteers, elected by the membership.

The NCBS was founded in 1982 as the Santa Cruz Bluegrass Society. Over the years its scope grew to cover more than just the Santa Cruz area, and in 1999 the membership voted to change its name to the Northern California Bluegrass Society.

As we are a non-profit organization, donations are both tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
