The 29th Annual Bowers Mansion Bluegrass Festival is an Official Nevada 150 Event as part of Nevada’s sesquicentennial celebration. Bowers Mansion Bluegrass Festival will be on the official events calendar soon at the following link, https://www.nevada150.org/events-calendar.
We are very excited and honored to be a part of this memorial event. Please go to the website and see the many events planned for Nevada’s 150th year celebration. Some of our local bands will be performing for this great event. Celebrations begin today!
This has been a great year for the NNBA. We added over 50 new members to our family. Our total membership is now over 200, and growing. Thank you Eric Lovejoy for doing such a greta job of managing the memberships database and reminding folks to renew. But most of all thanks to all of you for welcoming our newcomers and making them feel like part of the bluegrass family. Our Workshop/Jams at the Sunnyside Church are well-attended as are the Blind Onion Jams and the Old-time Jams. The Mountain Music Parlor has opened and hosts lots of activities including classes, porch jams, and soon will include concerts. Attendance at the Bowers Mansion Festival is growing every year. We will be celebrating the 30th Annual Festival in 2015, and it promises to be a grand one. Thank you all for supporting the NNBA. I look forward to seeing you at future events. --- Rick Rinehart, newsletter editor
