Educational Programs

For youth and adults

 

Kids academies at bluegrass festivals

We host kids academies at several bluegrass festivals in southern New England.

Monthly slow jam

The RIBA slow jam is held the third Sunday of the month, 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the Woodland Meeting House, 115 E Killingly Rd, Foster, RI. Each month, a different moderator works with attendees on their jamming skills. There is no cost to attend, but the hat is passed to compensate the jam leader for his/her time. We are happy to be offering it as part of our mission to promote the playing and enjoyment of Bluegrass music. All skill levels are welcome!

Learner Loaner program

Our "Learner Loaner" program will provide a banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, fiddle or dobro to a member or member family for six-months at a time so that they can learn the basics without having to initially purchase the instrument. If you're interested in participating, e-mail ribluegrass@gmail.com for more information.
