The South Shore Bluegrass Music Association …established in 1983

“There are no strangers in Bluegrass, only friends we have yet to meet.”

Our purpose and objective is to support and promote Bluegrass, Country and Old-Time Country music and all that is involved in this.

The SSBMA has 200+ members and is lead by a Board of Directors.

South Shore Bluegrass Music Association - Nova Scotia

The Double SS Bluegrass Park, the home of the association, is bustling with activity during the summer months. Most weekends from May to October members, come to camp, share stories, play cards, and enjoy traditional music, food and fellowship. It’s a welcoming place, where the members feel they belong. It’s a safe place, where they can laugh, have fun and make lasting friendships.

There are many occasions during the season that the public is invited to share in the fun and the music on the SSBMA stage.
