CBA Father’s Day Festival: June 16-19, 2016
Can you believe the 41st annual CBA Father’s Day Festival is less than a month away? Do you have your tickets yet? Is your membership current? Do you need some help getting excited for the festival?

Amazing Lineup!
Acts like: Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Danny Paisley & The Southern Grass, Blue & Lonesome, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, The Gibson Brothers, The Roustabouts, Barwick & Siegfried, Crary, Evans & Spurgin, Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, One Button Suit, The Bow Ties, The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, The New Reeltime Travelers, Flatt Lonesome, Rocky Neck Bluegrass Band and much, much more!

Multiple Stages!
In addition to our legendary Main Stage, there are other venues like the Pioneer Stage and Vern’s Place for alternative, intimate settings for fine music!

TONS of Jamming!
One of the things that makes the Father’s Days Festival so special is the amount of jamming that takes place, day and night – and the setting you’ll be jamming in: bucolic, pine-scented, sun-dappled natural beauty!

And that’s not all – there’s great food and drink, the Luthier’s Pavilion, the amazing Old Time Gathering. And tons of stuff for the younger set – Kids on Bluegrass, the Youth Program. See the links on the left to purchase tickets and/or renew (or begin) your membership in the California Bluegrass Association. See you in Grass Valley!

2016 Susanville Bluegrass Festival

“Hi Folks – we wanted to take the opportunity to thank each of you for attending our prior Susanville Bluegrass Festivals and would also like to invite you to attend this year’s event.
 Susanville 2016 Logo
We feel that we have a great band lineup this year and are once again presenting the opportunity for you to jump into the fun of the Bluegrass culture by enrolling in our music camp provided this year by the Traditional American Music Project (TRAMP).  Their instructors are engaging and know how to have fun while at the same time providing you with personal attention and advice on techniques on how to advance or hone your abilities in Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Bass and Vocals.  In addition, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, we will have a special Jam Class available which, we’re sure, many of you will enjoy.
In addition, we will once again have our Quilt Room available for those wanting to work on their project or begin a new one!
Again, we thank you for your previous visit(s) and would love to have you come again so won’t you please place us in your calendars.
The attached flyer and early-bird registration form is attached.
Should you have any questions,  our contact info is listed below!
We look forward to greeting you once again!
