This month, the CTBA is thrilled to add a new Bluegrass event at Vista Brewing in Driftwood! This beautiful property features a brewery, a sustainable kitchen, a kids play area and a beautiful outdoor stage. The event will take place every 2nd Saturday from Noon-3PM.

And April 16-19, members of the CTBA Board will be at Old Settler's Music Festival in Dale, TX. We hope to see you all out there to dance through the day and pick through the night!

Please check our calendars for more jams and events happening in the area! To learn more or to join the CTBA please visit

The Central Texas Bluegrass Association takes pride in furthering the future of Bluegrass by encouraging the study and practice of the next generation of Bluegrass musicians. Each year we award one or more students the opportunity to attend a Bluegrass camp or workshop of their choice through our Willa Beach-Porter Scholarship. The recipient(s) must be a resident of Texas and aged 12-21. The application must be received by June 1st but please note that students need not be a CTBA member to apply; in fact, scholarship recipients also receive a one-year CTBA family membership! To learn more and apply please visit

As always, feel free to reach out with any questions, comments or concerns. My email is always open at

Happy pickin' y'all!
Libby Brennan – CTBA President

The Central Texas Bluegrass Association, incorporated in 1978 as a Texas non-profit tax-exempt corporation, invites all bluegrass friends, fans, and pickers to become active members.
