MN Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association

Founded in 1975, the Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association (MBOTMA) has close to 1000 members and 100 member bands who love bluegrass, old-time string band, and related acoustic music.

Our mission is to preserve and promote bluegrass and old-time stringband music in and around the state of Minnesota.

We're a non-profit organization, presenting three festivals each year as well as a variety of jam sessions and other special events. Join us to become part of this wonderful group of people and help us continue to bring traditional acoustic music to the Upper Midwest.

Thank you to these organizations for all they do to support bluegrass and old-time music in Minnesota!

“This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”
