Many thanks to Regional Directors Donna Hargis and Danny Clark for hosting the CBA table in the Ace Hotel lobby, where they introduced many guests to the Association.




“In truth, if every state in the US had an association as organized and effective as CBA, bluegrass music would see a tremendous growth in popularity. If there is a statewide or regional bluegrass club near you, seek them out and join. The strength of CBA is in its numbers, which typically boasts multiples of the membership of the IBMA.”  John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
