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."

Heartland will be moving to the front section of Craig's RV park for the May-September months.  Indoor seating is provided for all shows during the summer months, so you need not bring chairs.

We've had a fantastic "season," and are grateful to all of our members who have supported the association with your dues and attendance, and also to our Jam Band participants and volunteers. Without them we could not do what we do. 

We have missed Joe and Marge Shallow for the last few months, but Marge reports that Joe is doing much better, and we should be seeing them back soon. We also want to wish Marge a Happy Birthday on her 90th as of April 23. Wow!

We hope our snowbird members have a great summer, and we'll be anxious to see y'all back next fall ! We hope our year-round members continue to join us each month and help keep our music alive, and invite friends, too!
