Over the years we have conducted performance presentations of bluegrass and traditional American music in the schools. In order to do this, we need your help! If you are a parent of a school age child in a district within the Boston/I-495 area, you may be able to interest your local school in hosting a presentation. The schools are much more interested when ideas come directly from parents.
The presentations demonstrate and explain bluegrass music and instruments, and give a historical overview of bluegrass and pre-bluegrass musical styles (both traditional and contemporary). The presentations highlight the musical connections between bluegrass and related musical forms, and explain the context of bluegrass music as an American musical form. The band will perform selections of various musical styles along the way. The show lasts about 50 minutes. Please let the BBU know if you have any thoughts on how to arrange one of these programs in a local school. For more info please contact us by emailing [email protected]
