The California Bluegrass Association invites you to join Abigail Washburn & Bela Fleck, Laurie Lewis & Kathy Kallick, and more in the first-ever Free Bluegrass 48-Hour Livestream Jam-a-Thon! This historic worldwide Bluegrass livestream kicks off Friday, Jan. 8 at 5:00 pm PST and doesn’t stop until 5:00 pm Sunday, January 10.
Also in the lineup: IBMA award winners Danny Paisley, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Alan Bibey, Missy Raines, Deanie Richardson, Tina Adair, Becky Buller, Sierra Hull, Front Country, Joe Walsh & Grant Gordy, and members of Sister Sadie, Della Mae, Wood & Wire, and more! The Sam Bush Band’s Wes Corbett offers a star-studded banjo workshop, Del McCoury Band’s Jason Carter and friends talk and play fiddle, and Missy Raines leads a bass hang with Mike Bub, Marshall Wilborn, and Vickie Vaughn.

Look for streaming links and the schedule at   The entire stream is FREE. Your donations are gratefully accepted on behalf of the California Bluegrass Association’s Youth Academy, which builds the future of Bluegrass by providing top-notch musical education for a diverse pre-teen and teen population.

A portion of the funds raised will support the development of a new interactive Bluegrass website to be launched this Spring; it will be full of musical activities for young people, who’ve been deprived of vital infrastructure such as music festivals, schools, and jam spaces. Successful musicians agree: exposure to learning opportunities and community is a huge part of what makes someone a lifelong lover of music. It’s what will carry our music through generations.

We'll be binge-watching.  Join us!
