Love bluegrass?  Love BGLA.

Check out our pitch video at http://www.vimeo.com/bluegrassla/bglavideoproject/ :

Why do we love bluegrass?

For us, it’s the experience. To see the sheer brilliance and true musicianship of a bluegrass band is an experience unlike any other.

Here in Los Angeles we are incredibly lucky. We’re not just another stop on a musician’s tour schedule. Southern California is home to some of the most talented emerging and established bluegrass musicians. Our bluegrass roots are strong, and through BGLA we’ve been able to help strengthen the ties of the southern California bluegrass, Americana, and folk communities. Right now, southern Cali’s bluegrass scene is more vibrant than ever and, at a time when bluegrass music is receiving unparalleled national attention, we would be foolish not to show off our wealth of bluegrass talent to the world.

In an effort to showcase our brilliant local bluegrass, Americana, and folk artists, we’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a new project. We’re calling it The BluegrassLA Video Series and it’s an exciting way to promote local artists by collaborating with young filmmakers to create a high quality series of musical web videos (think Le Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts, or Sound on Sound’s Doe Bay Sessions). 

This is where you come in. In order to make this a reality we need your support. With your help we’ll be able to get the equipment, crew, and everything else needed to create the highest caliber productions for you to enjoy. The more you give, the more videos we can create, and the more we’ll be able to help promote southern California bluegrass. 

We have a goal of $2500 dollars and just over 20 days to get there. If we don’t make our goal, we don’t get any of the funds (and therefore no publicity for Southern Cali bluegrass). 

Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated (and we’ve got great BGLA incentives for any gift over $10). 

Feel free to contact us with any comments or questions.

We know you love bluegrass music as much as we do. Please help us give the southern California bluegrass community the publicity it deserves.
