A New Venue For Tasmanian Bluegrass Association – Craigbourne Estate

The Tasmanian Bluegrass Association has taken up a new venue in the south of the state. The association usually meets in Miena Tasmania on the first Saturday of the month, and in winter, moved that regular gathering to the lowlands at Westbury. The association’s new southern venue is in Craigbourne on the third Saturday of the month, and is ideal for those unable to attend the regular Miena jam.

    Will there be a workshop for complete beginners on guitar? I love listening to Bluegrass music. And I want to learn how to play Bluegrass music on guitar. But I don’t know where to start.
