The IBMA Youth Council organizes an incredible track of events just for youth, including:
The IBMA Youth Council is pulling together a dynamic set of workshops, jams, artist drop-ins and more to make the IBMA World of Bluegrass Youth Events better than ever!
The IBMA Youth Council hosts the Youth Stage on Friday and Saturday during IBMA Bluegrass Live! with full sets by youth bands across the two-day festival!
The Kids On Bluegrass program spotlights the talents of young bluegrass musicians and singers (4-17 years old) at IBMA World of Bluegrass. There’s no better opportunity for youth to create, arrange, and perform bluegrass music in addition to building lifelong friendships.
The IBMA Foundation works with institutions of higher education to encourage young bluegrass musicians to pursue bluegrass on a serious level. During IBMA World of Bluegrass, college ensembles will have the opportunity to perform on our Youth Stage and spread the word about their programs. For more information, contact the IBMA Foundation.
