Kids In Bluegrass Club is a Eastern Canada Non-Profit Organization interested in Education of the heritage of bluegrass music and the instruction of how to play bluegrass music to a younger generation which acknowledges our Kids on Bluegrass.
Chantal O'Neil founder and President of "Kids in Bluegrass"put together a youth concert of young pickers at a festival in 2013 because her daugther Codie O'Neil wanted to play mandolin on the main stage. The kids were a huge success and this is how "Kids in Bluegrass Club" began.
Chantal now meets with the kids through out the year to help them prepare for "Kids in Bluegrass" youth concerts in the Maritimes. The performers (4 - 19 years old) have band practices/lessons and learn self discipline and work hard through out the year but the reward for the kids (and parents) is huge.
This year we started an instrument lending and learning program.
Donation of bluegrass instruments (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, stand up bass, banjo, dobro).
We currently have 4 musical instruments for lending and all 4 of the instruments are signed out in the hands of "Kids in Bluegrass" along with picks straps and instructional materials.
We are in need and accept donation of playable instruments needing little repair/set up.
We are seeking for supports that can assist us with set up and small repairs on musical instruments.
We are also seeking sponsors or donors to step forward to help us get more instruments into the hands of more children.
I currently have some picks, instructional materials available but any donations of these items would also be helpful.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
