Northern California Bluegrass Society
10th Annual Bluegrass On Broadway Festival
January 27-28-30, 2017
Redwood City, California




The Northern California Bluegrass Society was founded in 1982 as the Santa Cruz Bluegrass Society and is still known by that name in the greater Santa Cruz Area. The name was changed in 1999 to reflect the organization's true geographic scope. The society serves the San Francisco Bay Area, the Monterey Bay Area, and all of Northern California.

Dancin' John

In 2000 Dancin’ John attended 19 music festivals and music shows. After speaking with friends, he discovered that he had attended more events than anyone he knew. In 2001 he decided to make a deliberate effort to attend as many music events as possible to see what his record high could be. He attended 120 events---but many festivals and events were cancelled after the September 11 attacks. John decided to try again in 2002 to see how many events he could attend in a full year. His amazing record for 2002 was 162 music festivals and shows. Realizing this was a record not likely to be broken by himself or anyone else, John has (since 2002) attended 40-50 festivals or shows each year. Even at 40-50 per year, we doubt anyone can challenge his record! Dancin’ John, we THANK YOU for your unwavering loyalty to musicians and to music events.

In a historic first, the video podcast “En Extremena En Silicon Valley“ gave the January 28, 2017 Northern California Bluegrass Awards Show & Concert its first known Spanish-Language Coverage.

YouTube Video Below: Una Extremeña En Silicon Valley: Redwood City This is a 10:16 minute video. The first festival segment begins at the 2:55 minute point.

This video podcast covers several Redwood City & Palo Alto-area topics while Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” plays softly in the background.
