FDF California Showcase Entries


Greetings to all California bluegrass and old time bands!

Every year the CBA Father’s Day Festival honors five bands as California Showcase Bands. CSBs receive financial compensation and will perform on both the Main and Pioneer Stages at the 2020 Festival.  

Bands are invited to submit samples of their music for “blind” review by a selection panel, which will send its recommendations to the CBA Board for final approval.  

All submitting bands must be California-based non-touring bands. If this year is anything like previous years, we will receive a large number of submittals; bands not selected will be invited to apply for slots on Vern’s Stage.  

All bluegrass and old time bands should send three sample songs/tunes (at least one of which is a slow number) to be received by NO LATER THAN September 1, 2019.   
Please email mp3 samples to [email protected] or snail mail CDs to:
