Peter Thompson’s All Things Bluegrass for October

Need info on November’s Bay Area and beyond Bluegrass and Old-time-related concerts, jams, festivals, instructional opportunities, and radio shows?  Look here for Peter’s comprehensive overview.

Greetings –

You’ve reached the place to find out about what’s happening in the wonderful world of San Francisco Bay Area (and beyond) bluegrass and old time music. You can find up-to-date listings of concert and club events, festivals, jam sessions, instructional opportunities, dances, and more. Please send additions and corrections to:

You can also see playlists and scheduled features of the “Bluegrass Signal” radio program. The show began on KALW in 1995, and the first hour has been rebroadcast on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country since 2002. I began producing and hosting bluegrass (and other) radio shows in 1975 at Vancouver Co-op Radio, and have also produced and hosted programs for CBC Radio, KPFA, KKUP, and KCSM.

BLUEGRASS SIGNAL is broadcast Saturdays, 5-6 pm, on KALW (91.7 FM in Bay Area). It is then available on demand for one week here (select ‘Bluegrass Signal’). The program is also broadcast on Bluegrass Country four times each week: initially on Mondays at 8 pm, with rebroadcasts Tuesdays  (9 pm), Fridays (3 pm), and Saturdays (9 pm).

I also distribute a monthly newsletter of Bay Area Bluegrass and Old Time events; the latest edition is available HERE.
Please let me know if you’d like to be added to the mailing list by emailing me <[email protected]>

Thanks for listening — and for your comments and suggestions!

I hope you get to hear and/or play some music soon.

Keep on the sunny side –
Peter
