About Heartland-Southwest Florida Bluegrass Association of Florida


What are we ?


We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to the promotion, preservation, and appreciation of bluegrass music. 


Bluegrass music is one of America's only original forms of music. As such it is worthy of preservation, promotion, and participation by a dedicated group of people. We believe that this music engenders a sense of belonging, encourages musicians and spectators alike to come together and share their love and appreciation for this aspect of Americana. To many of us, it is a “family,” because regardless of where we go to hear or play bluegrass music, we are warmly welcomed and embraced by other bluegrassers.


All contributions to HSWFBA are tax-deductible.

Our Mission: "To preserve, encourage and promote traditional Bluegrass music and its evolving variants, and to provide a venue and a matrix within which we bring together those persons desiring to preserve, encourage and promote said music."  The link below is an excellent article/history of Heartland by Justin Mason.
