We appreciate your ongoing support of CBMS and its programs to keep bluegrass music alive and growing. Your membership helps us to fund the outreach programs in the schools, helps us to sponsor a person to attend Rocky Grass Academy (Planet Bluegrass splits the cost with us), keeps the website running and the member data base up to speed. It also gives you a monthly newsletter, Pow'r Pickin', mailed to your door.

We are super proud of the Colorado bands that participated in the Rocky Grass 2016 Band competition. In the finals were two CBMS member bands - MasonTown and Ragged Union. Colorado was well represented!
We want to give a big CBMS welcome to Jay Harlan who has accepted the Volunteer Coordinator position. Jay will be calling on you to volunteer at a variety of events, festivals and concerts in promoting Colorado Bluegrass Music Society and bluegrass music in general. Contact Jay here. And a special shout out to Annie Savage for continuing to serve CBMS well. She was everywhere at RockyGrass, managing the CBMS table, making friends, rubbing elbows, AND was a participant in the band contest with The Savage Hearts. We are very proud to have her as our CBMS president.
