Coming up

Club concert and jam Wednesday 10 October 8 pm

It’s going to be great club concert and jam at the Bunker on Wednesday 10 October. It won’t be the first time, and it won’t be the last.

The irony is that this kind of fun can be had while singing traditional bluegrass songs, many of which were written by some real sad dudes. Still, the trick is to sing em’ with a smile, and before you know it, everybody’s happy.

So come along and perform a song or two, or sit back and appreciate the performance and the easy-peasy jam session.

By the way, if you subscribe to the Auckland Bluegrass Club mailing list you can download for free the Auckland Bluegrass Jamming Song Book with lyrics and chords for 30 popular jamming songs.

Kiwigrass Bluegrass Festival 1-3 February 2019

www.kiwigrass.nz

Kiwigrass is the New Zealand Bluegrass Festival.

Kiwigrass is being organised by a keen group of bluegrass lovers in New Zealand.  Their goal is to raise the profile of bluegrass in New Zealand, promote New Zealand based bluegrass musicians to the world, and bring the joy of the American bluegrass festival experience to New Zealand.

We love the idea and many of our members will be heading down there to take in the line up of great overseas acts, and may even camp a few days earlier to attend master classes if they eventuate.

Dates: 1-3 February 2019. Kick off Friday evening, wrap up late Sunday afternoon.

Venue: Narrows Park. Hamilton, New Zealand.

Narrows Park is a great venue with good camping and bunk facilities, with lots of space and rooms for jamming an performances.

There are 120 cabin beds, 24 powered camping sites, and acres of unpowered camping available.
