Regional Directors

The California Bluegrass Association has a terrific team of Regional Directors spread out through our 29 regions. Their job is to represent the CBA in their geographic area. Our Regional Directors help start and keep regular jams going, promote live Bluegrass and Old-time performances in their respective communities, keep the CBA updated on Bluegrass and Old-time events and activities, and offer assistance to the Association in its outreach efforts across the state.

If you know of someone who you think might be interested in serving in a currently unrepresented region, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact the Regional Directors Coordinator.
