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.
