Calling All Youth Musicians & Singers!

Missouri Area Bluegrass Committee (MABC), aka Bluegrass America, is sponsoring its annual Youth Contests this year on Friday, March 16, 2012.  This is a very unique competition because it includes the Talent Contest in addition to the Banjo & Fiddle Competitions.  This is definitely my favorite of all the contests!  This provides the opportunity for all musicians 16 years of age and younger to perform on any number of bluegrass instruments, sing, or even compete as a youth band!  Friday night tickets are only $10.00, and Youth 16 & under are free with a paying adult. I guarantee you'll be entertained!

The contests are part of the 12th Annual Gene Roberts Memorial bluegrass festival held at the Holiday Inn Six Flags in Eureka, MO.  Rooms are only $69 when you ask for the bluegrass rate. Jamming throughout the hotel, Saturday morning matinee, and live bluegrass music shows Saturday afternoon and evening!

The Bluegrass Shack will be set up in the vendor room throughout the weekend, and Chris will be managing the Friday night youth competitions.  Click HERE for a direct link to the .pdf flyer.  If you have any questions on the competition, please contact Chris Talley Armstrong at The Bluegrass Shack via e-mail at mailto:bluegrassshack@aol.com or at 618-475-3678.  We hope to see you there!
