CTBMA at Canterbury Historical Society...TONIGHT!

Members of the CT Bluegrass Music Association will present a "crash course" on Bluegrass music -- Where'd it come from? Who's the "Father of Bluegrass?" What are the Bluegrass instruments? -- tonight for the October meeting of the Canterbury Historical Society. The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the Canterbury Town Hall, One Municipal Drive, Canterbury, CT. Admission is FREE and open to the public. The business meeting starts at 7PM, and will be followed by the CTBMA presentation about 7:30PM. If you have friends who are new to the BG, or if you'd like to learn a bit more yourself, come on out and see this CTBMA presentation. These folks, led by CTBMA President Kim Cyr, have been presenting this program in many schools and libraries throughout CT for the past several years, and I can tell you from past experience that this is a terrific introduction to Bluegrass. Please come on out and join us!

Now, a bit of fine print: one of the other hats I wear away from the "Bluegrass Cafe" is that I'm the current President of the Canterbury Historical Society. Normally, at our monthly meetings, we have speakers come in to inform and educate us about historical topics, but isn't Bluegrass music historical? It's certainly 100% American, and what better way to get folks fired up for our November 18th show (more to be posted on that later on...)

Hope to see you in Canterbury tonight....
