Alabama Bluegrass Music Association

The Alabama Bluegrass Music Association is a nonprofit organization established in January of 1996. The objective of the association is to promote bluegrass music in the state of Alabama.

We do this by publishing a monthly newsletter - "BamaGrass", holding an annual festival in March to showcase our bands, providing this web site, and by being present at bluegrass festivals to provide information on upcoming events, artists and membership information.


About the Alabama Blues Project:

The mission of the Alabama Blues Project is to preserve and promote blues music as a traditional and contemporary art form through interactive programs that educate and entertain. With educational programs, live performances, exhibits, and the development of archival and curriculum materials, the ABP increases awareness of the role blues music has played in the development of popular American music, with a special focus on Alabama's contribution to that story. These activities add to the richness of cultural experiences that make the West Alabama area a great place to live and visit. ABP’s programs reach a wide variety of students and audiences, including many at-risk and troubled youth. Our signature and unique blues camp programs pass on Alabama 's rich blues culture to the next generation while instilling self-esteem, discipline, cross cultural understanding, interaction, and teamwork.
