Welcome to the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association
Founded in 1975, the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association now has close to 1000 members and 100 member bands who love bluegrass, old-time string band, and related acoustic music. We're a non-profit organization, presenting four festivals each year as well as a variety of jam sessions and other special events. Join us to become part of this wonderful group of people and help us continue to bring traditional acoustic music to the Upper Midwest.
Drum roll please - Next summer will be the 40th Annual August Festival, August 8-11, 2019! Ricky Scaggs & Kentucky Thunder will be the headliners - and would you believe - we've already got early bird tickets on sale!
