Coming this June 27th and 28th is Porch Pride: A Bluegrass Pride Queer-antine , a celebration of + pickers, fans and allies coming together around the usual Pride celebrations that have been cancelled in the face of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

Started as a side project of the California Bluegrass Association in 2017, Bluegrass Pride is now an internationally-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to letting the world know that bluegrass and old-time music are for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, orientation, nationality, upbringing, or politics. The goal of Porch Pride is to highlight and showcase + Roots musicians while also generating financial support as they navigate a new, nearly non-existent performance landscape.

Performances will include , and much much more (see below for the lineup and ).

Tune in here for the streams next month.
