Established in 2013, the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance’s mission is to promote the appreciation of bluegrass music and serve as a resource to educate and coordinate fans, students, teachers, musicians and venues in Rhode Island and the surrounding area. The organization holds events including the annual Pick-nic and RIBA Hall of Fame, as well as educational programs such as a monthly slow jam and the Learner Loaner program, which lends instruments to people interested in learning guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro or bass.

Gates open at 3:00 pm. Bring a lawn chair, bug spray and a flashlight.
