New Organization Forming To Continue Redwood Bluegrass Associates Concerts In The Fall

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

The last Redwood Bluegrass Associates concert was held earlier tonight, ending a 25-year run under that organization, which took over from the Santa Cruz Bluegrass Society, which started the concerts back in 1984.

Now, a new organization is being organized to continue this South Bay series in the fall. Contact (Lois Kellerman) loiskelll (at) yahoo (dot) com for more information and to volunteer to help out at this important juncture.

The Northern California Bluegrass Society has supported the concerts for the past quarter of a century and will continue to do so in the future.

Final Redwood Bluegrass Associates Concert Is Saturday April 22 In Mountain View

Friday, April 21st, 2017

The final Redwood Bluegrass Associates concert, ending a long South Bay/Santa Cruz tradition, will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Masonic Hall, 890 Church Street in Mountain View. The Grand Finale will present The Faultliners with 27strings as the opening act. Showtime is 7:30pm with the doors opening at 7:00pm.

The series began in 1984 as a presentation of the Santa Cruz Bluegrass Society and was spun off as a separate non-profit concert organization in 1992. The RBA’s 25-year run as custodian of the popular Saturday evening bluegrass programs will come to an end as the current volunteers retire from many years of bluegrass service. A new group of dedicated bluegrass volunteers plans to re-launch this important element of Bay Area bluegrass life in the fall.

The Northern California Bluegrass Society/Santa Cruz Bluegrass Society has welcomed all RBA concerts since 1995.

The RBA has rolled back the admission price for the final show to an early 1990s level. Enjoy!

A free open jam will begin at 5:00pm.
