Mission Statement

The Desert Bluegrass Association was conceived in March, 1995, when a group of avid bluegrassers perceived a need for an organization to develop and promote Bluegrass music for the diverse audience in the Greater Tucson Area.

The DBA is an all volunteer organization whose purpose is to:

  • Provide a monthly meeting place for all individuals, musicians and non-musicians alike, who are interested in bluegrass music.
  • Disseminate information about bluegrass music events.
  • Develop a workshop and concert series.
  • Develop an annual bluegrass festival.
  • Support local/regional artists.
  • Support national/international artists.
