A Chapter of Mid-Columbia Traditional Arts and Music Association

We are the Bluegrass and Old-time acoustic music part of MCTAMA.  Our members play and listen to folk music, blues, old time Appalachian, fiddle tunes, but mostly BLUEGRASS.

This group gives us all a chance to learn more about the music we love and to be exposed to new types of music – and especially new musicians.  Come by and say hello at the jams on Tuesday evenings at Quinault Baptist Church in Kennewick, and the first Thursday Bluegrass Jam at First Christian Church in Pasco.

These are family-oriented events and everyone is welcome. So, bring your instruments and family members and be ready to enjoy a wonderful evening of music.

We look forward to meeting with you!
