Heartland Bluegrass Music Association of Florida  

Heartland Bluegrass Music
Association of Florida

Bluegrass music is one of America's only original forms of music. As such it is worthy of preservation, promotion, and participation by a dedicated group of people. We believe that this music engenders a sense of belonging, encourages musicians and spectators alike to come together and share their love and appreciation for this aspect of Americana. To many of us, it is a “family,” because regardless of where we go to hear or play bluegrass music, we are warmly welcomed and embraced by other bluegrassers.   

Our Mission: "To preserve, encourage and promote traditional Bluegrass music and its evolving variants, and to provide a venue and a matrix within which we bring together those persons desiring to preserve, encourage and promote said music."

Fall, 2016 Update

(Be sure to like our Facebook page for all of the most up-to-date information.)

It's time to look ahead and see what's on the schedule for the upcoming months. You might want to save this to make sure you have dates and bands correct. 

Each event, except the New Year's weekend one, falls on the 4th weekend of the month. While in the rear section, the concession stand will open on Saturdays from 11AM-3PM.


I keep the Facebook page very current with all you need to know about what's happening in our area.
