The Great 48 is open to everyone at no cost, and all Bluegrass and Old-time music fans are invited and encouraged to attend. Come count in the New Year together – January 5,6,7,8!

The Bakersfield Great 48 Jam kicks off the California Bluegrass Association’s 2023 calendar of musical events, so tune your strings and get ready to pick with friends, old and new.

The beautiful Bakersfield Marriott at the Convention Center, 801 Truxtun Ave, Bakersfield, CA will once again welcome acoustic musicians from beginner to experienced, encouraging non-stop jamming throughout the lobby, on the patios, in designated ballrooms and jamming floors. Whether you come to play, or come to listen, CBA associations from California and Nevada will have jamming suites open to all on the 2nd and 9th floors. We hope you will stop by these suites and find out more about the diverse and exciting world of Bluegrass and Old-time music.
