We encourage you to think of Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association (MBOTMA), a 501(c)(3), as part of your charitable giving. When you make a gift to MBOTMA, you can designate it to support Grass Seeds Academy, or the General Fund.
Grass Seeds Academy
Grass Seeds and GS2 are MBOTMA sponsored youth workshops held in conjunction with the Winter Bluegrass Weekend. The groups meet for one session Friday night, two sessions on Saturday and one session Sunday morning. The kids then have the opportunity to show us all what they have learned with a concert on Sunday at 1:00. Donations designated to Grass Seeds Academy help MBOTMA cover the expenses of offering this valuable program.
Proceeds are used for mentorships, scholarships, workshops, classes, and other educational activities related to bluegrass and old-time music.
