The Oregon Bluegrass Association is a volunteer run organization dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and performance of bluegrass and related music.

Welcome all to our new website! We are excited about the new look and capabilities, but there will be some bumps along the way as we transition from the old site. Have fun checking it out and if you find something that seems broken, please drop us an email using the contact link at the bottom of the page. We hope you’ll also let us know what you like about it or pass the word by hitting the “like” or share button for Facebook below. You could also just tell the next OBA board member you see…Enjoy!



If you’re a current member of the Oregon Bluegrass Association, one of the fun things that you receive as a member is an invitation to the Annual Meeting. It costs you nothing and is a fun party which includes jamming, good food, prizes and a very short meeting. The intent is first, to thank the members for their support and to provide an opportunity to meet the board, make suggestions, find out what the OBA has been up to during the year and what plans are in the works for 2016. The meeting this year will be held at Trexler Farm in Stayton. They are catering some delicious food, which we’ve heard from many people is ‘to die for’. Typically between 55 and 75 members come and spend most of the day playing, visiting, eating and drinking. Lots of items are raffled off including tickets to several festivals, as well as tons of CDs, OBA and Taborgrass t-shirts, strings, hats from Nechville and more. This year we’ll have a rare record album from the mid-1970s featuring The Sawtooth Mountain Boys, Dr. Corn’s, Puddle City and the Muddy Bottom Boys.

The date is Sunday, April 10. Trexler Farm is located at 20146 Ferry Rd. SE, Stayton, OR. The hours are from noon to 6pm. And it’s free to current members. Any questions, contact Chris Palmer at
Bring your appetite, your instrument, your friends and your appreciation of bluegrass music!
