Many in our bluegrass music community are grieving the tragic losses suffered by the people of Eastern Kentucky due to the recent devastating floods. The rebuilding of those lives and communities will take years, if not decades.
We know that many who love and play bluegrass music want to help. We encourage all who wish to support those folks in Eastern Kentucky do so by donating to the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky, which is headquartered in Hazard and conducting relief efforts in the affected communities.
The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky is presently making emergency relief grants to individuals and families in need, and hopes to assist farms and small businesses as the recovery continues.
If you want to connect with jammers, fans, bluegrass music festivals, and other bluegrass music events in Texas, then you’re in the right place. The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation exists to preserve and promote the heritage of bluegrass music. We focus on presenting bluegrass music and bluegrass music festivals in Texas. We work to educate people about our favorite kind of music in many ways, such as programs and workshops, public performances of bluegrass music, and the Bluegrass Heritage Radio Show. Because of our wonderful partnerships with cities around D/FW, many of our bluegrass music festivals are free with no ticket required!
Of course, our most important effort is the free bluegrass instrument lending program for young people – Play It Forward!® The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with an all-volunteer staff that loves to present bluegrass music and bluegrass music festivals in Texas. Please contact us with any questions.
