Happy October Bluegrass Music Lovers. 

Cooler temperatures, shorter days and fall colors are here. That means it's a great time to get together with friends for some picking. 

Here is a list of events we know about coming up in October.

The IBA continues to sponsor several weekly and monthly jams. Check the website for dates, times and location.

I hope you are still reading because here is some fabulous news. The local luthier and good friend to the IBA, Mike Murray, has made an extremely generous donation. He has pledged his next custom, hand-crafted dreadnought style guitar with top rate materials to the IBA. This guitar is currently in production and is expected to be finished within the next month or so. We hope to auction the guitar online before the Christmas holiday. What a great gift this would make for yourself or your sweetie under the tree. Stay tuned for details.

Hope to see you at a jam soon.

Cheers, Joe Gobel
President, Idaho Bluegrass Association
