Links for more BG info...

You may notice to the right that we have included a few links for you to explore. They are:

  1. WHUS. Like many radio stations, you can now listen to all of our programming through your computer. Of course, we'd love to have you listen to the BG Cafe in this manner if you're outside of our traditional broadcasting range. You may be interested in other programming you'll find at WHUS, as well, including folk, soul, polka music, world music, jazz, classical, and lots of public affairs programs. Take a look at what we have to offer when you visit the site.
  2. The Bluegrass Blog. This blog is a great resource for information on all things bluegrass on a worldwide level. The authors are primarily John Lawless of AcuTab Publications and the band, Acoustic Endeavors, and Brance Gillihan of Clear Blue Productions, and news is added to the blog daily. Check it out for your daily "fix" of BG news.
  3. The Connecticut Bluegrass Music Association. This is the online homeplace of the Connecticut Bluegrass Music Association (or, CTBMA), which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, preservation, and evolution of Bluegrass music. On the website, information is included on their various programs, as well as their Salem Barn concerts and other BG shows in CT. CTBMA was founded in 2000 by a WHUS alum bluegrass broadcaster, Kim Cyr.
  4. The Rhode Island Bluegrass Music Association. This "new kid on the block" (also known as RIBGMA) was formed in early 2006 by RI banjo man, Richard Guilbault. Even though this new group is based in RI and carries that name, the organization is really dedicated to "preservation, promotion, and education of the public in the heritage and traditions of Bluegrass Music in Rhode Island and our neighboring states." This is a non-profit, membership organization, so if you'd like to join in, go to the RIBGMA website for more information.

Happy surfing!
