Thank You Volunteers!

Minnesota Bluegrass would not exist without the talent, dedication, and commitment of our volunteers. We only have a handful of part time staff members – almost everything we do is accomplished by volunteers. Service to the organization is not only fun, it’s a great way to connect with other people who share your love of the music. Thank you volunteers for everything you do for Minnesota Bluegrass!
