Greater Oklahoma Bluegrass Music Society Concert Oklahoma City, OK

My fine colleague Matt Patterson recently wrote a great feature on the Greater Oklahoma Bluegrass Society, members of which have been getting together to pick and grin since 1978.

The society puts on a concert and jam session at the Oklahoma Country Western Museum and Hall of Fame in Del City the second Saturday of each month. The next one is Feb. 9.

The organization also promotes other activities like the weekly Friday Night Jams at the Oklahoma Country Western Museum and Hall of Fame in Del City and at Sooner Acoustic Music in Midwest City.

Society President Nathan Sanders told Matt that bluegrass remains popular in Oklahoma. The society has about 400 members in central Oklahoma and other parts of the state.

“There’s a big interest in it overall,” Sanders said. “Most bluegrassers stick with it for a lifetime. People grow up with it, and it becomes a part of who they are. And other than that, it’s a lot of fun.”
