California Bluegrass Association Announces the Turn Your Radio OnLINE webcast – Final show.
Live streamed performances connecting the bluegrass and old-time community online while raising funds for the CBA’s new COVID Artist Relief Fund
This new online music event is inspired by the CBA’s annual Father’s Day Festival, held in Grass Valley, California, since 1975.
The webcast will be accompanied by an online auction to raise funds for the CBA’s newly announced COVID Artist Relief Fund. Items being auctioned include fine acoustic instruments, books, music lessons, historic bluegrass memorabilia, and items of interest from popular musicians. There is a raffle for fine instruments.
Turn Your Radio OnLINE will also feature live interviews, online interaction, and more, connecting with the energy of California’s thriving bluegrass scene. Watch for our expanded show on June 20.
“Bluegrass and Old-Time music have always been about people gathering together,” according to Theresa Gooding, president of the CBA. “We approached this project with a sense of urgency to create a new infrastructure and fun content, in order to connect our community and support our talented musicians.”
