Want to share your news with a wider audience outside of CT? Check out the New England Bluegrass List (NEBG-L)

NEBG-L is an email-based mailing list sponsored by the Boston Bluegrass Union.  Subscribers to the mailing list use it to make announcements about upcoming bluegrass and bluegrass-related concerts, festivals, jams, workshops and other events.  Outside of our Events Calendar, it is probably the best way to stay informed about bluegrass in New England.

The mailing list is not meant as a discussion group, though sometimes subscribers will use it to post bluegrass-related questions.  As a courtesy, when posting details on events, include location and date in the Subject line.   You must subscribe to the list to send and receive content.  And, posts to the list are not managed or screened. Please: no flaming and respect the intent of the list.

The link below will take you to the NEBG-L subscription page.
