The Boston Bluegrass Union is an all-volunteer New England-based bluegrass music association promoting and supporting bluegrass festivals, concerts, jams, and bluegrass music education throughout the Northeast.


Exciting News!  We recently have been awarded the 2016 Distinguished Achievement Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). The award is bestowed to those making “significant contributions to bluegrass music” and is the most prized IBMA award short of induction into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. Entering our 40th year of bluegrass education and performance, we’re only the second bluegrass association to receive the award.  Click here for the press release.

Join the Boston Bluegrass Union February 17-19, 2017 and celebrate the legacy of the late Joe Val with three big days of bluegrass. Festival Page
We offer workshops, group lessons, jams, and other activities to help everyone learn to play and enjoy this wonderful music. Learn More
