To our CTBA community,
Even in these challenging times, the CTBA board continues to brainstorm new ways of adapting to life while promoting and supporting bluegrass communities across the globe. While pickin’ circles and bluegrass nights have all been postponed, we are utilizing new technology that continues to keep us united. We have modified our scholarship program to represent a wider group of promising young pickers and even have some exciting perks for our active members!
While we are all doing our best to socially distance ourselves, please know that we are here for you. Feel free to reach out at any time, whether through social media, email or if you want to talk on the phone.
Let’s look ahead to days when porches are filled with pickers and two steppers dance into bluegrass nights.
Thank y’all for the continued support. Happy pickin!
President, Central Texas Bluegrass Association
2020 SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE
Due to the cancellation of bluegrass camps and workshops, we have modified the Willa Beach-Porter scholarship to adapt to online learning courses. We are partnering with ArtistWorks, an online community that provides a series of lessons from introductory to advanced courses. Each scholarship will be awarded a year-long membership.
There will be a total of five scholarships awarded. Three scholarships will be awarded to students ages 12-21; the remaining two scholarships awarded to those 22 and older who are active members of the CTBA. All scholarship recipients must currently live in Texas and submit (1) the online application and (2) two letters of recommendation no later than May 15th, 2020.
To learn more and apply today please visit CentralTexasBluegrass.org/Scholarship.

We would also like to take a moment to thank the businesses who have shown their support of bluegrass in Central Texas by hosting events, promoting bluegrass, or just supporting our community. If you are able to support them by purchasing to-go items, gift cards, merch...or heck just following them on social media, please do consider doing so. Every action counts!
