Welcome to the web site for the Southwest Bluegrass Association (SWBA)


We're a large organization of bluegrass pickers and grinners in the Southwestern United States who promote and participate in Bluegrass music in the this region.

SWBA brings people together for the preservation, enjoyment and advancement of bluegrass and related musical forms. This is done through house jams, instructional workshops, concerts, organizing festivals and our bi-monthly newsletter.

 In addition to promoting bluegrass in general, SWBA's objectives include:

  • Cultivating and improving public appreciation of bluegrass, including the music's artistic value and its contribution to American heritage.  SWBA members are from the entire southwest, and while we attend and support events throughout this region, it is very much our goal to encourage and support local attendance at bluegrass event we sponsor.

  • Assisting other organizations, event promoters and any others involved with bluegrass to increase the public's awareness and appreciation of this music , through concerts, house jams, campouts, festivals, or other projects and events.

  • Fostering unity among fans, performers and any other bluegrass organizations, or individuals involved in bluegrass.  Instituting and conducting educational and promotional activities which will advance the appreciation of our American musical heritage and culture, including the development of school-based activities and events that will introduce young people to the satisfaction of participating in and listening to the music .

SWBA is wholly supported by membership fees and fund raising projects, all of which pay for the events, activities, and  programs we offer, which includes this free website for the general public

SWBA is organized under the California Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation Law as a charitable, educational, historical and tax exempt public corporation.  It is not organized for the private gain of any person, or persons.
