The Southwest Florida Bluegrass Assoc.

The next Heartland-Southwest Florida Bluegrass Music Association Event will be on Sept 23, 2023.

This will be our last show in the Recreation Hall, and we will be moving out back to the big stage in October. All camping will be up front as well for this one. We had a great turn out for the August show. The camping up front is really nice, and at $25 for a full hook up you cannot really beat it.

We have a great show lined up with the following scheduled performances. Really looking forward to this one. There will be some great picking, and singing on stage: Heartland-Southwest Jam Band (1:00)
If And When (2:00) - If and When is a band from the East coast that has visited before, and we look forward to having them back !

50/50 Raffle (2:50)
We Three Strings (3:00) We Three Strings features long time Florida fiddler Jason 'Cornbread' Baker. This trio will certainly entertain you with their eclectic presentation.

The Fifty-Fifty Drawing will be between the featured bands.

We have a Beginner-Friendly Jam at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning in the Rec Hall. We will have Karin's Kitchen providing food, and snacks ! There will be a lot of bluegrass jamming, and parking lot picking throughout the weekend. You are welcome to bring your instrument and join in. All ability levels are welcome.
