South Carolina

Bluegrass & Traditional Music Association


Welcome to the South Carolina Bluegrass and Traditional Music Association

The SCBTMA's primary objectives are to preserve, promote, publicize, and support these unique musical styles through concerts, workshops, and public education programs. We invite you to join us in sharing the future of bluegrass and traditional music in South Carolina. Your membership and personal involvement can make a difference.


  • Works with other nationally recognized organizations with the same objectives.
  • Consciously provides a family setting in which experienced musicians can pass on this musical heritage to younger ones via the oral tradition.
  • Strives for public recognition of outstanding SC musicians.

BoysFarm Musical Instrument & Supply Donations

The SCBTMA delivered several musical instruments Friday December  to "Boys Farm" in Newberry, SC. Jim Jordan and Leo Pearson met with Patti Branham and Executive Director, Michael Davis to deliver instruments that were requested by the house parents on behalf of the students. Boys Farm's mission is to "provide for the physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of all the children at Boys Farm." It is the SCBTMA's privilege to provide instruments to enhance the children's musical education. Many thanks to our SCBTMA members who so generously donated instruments. We still have instruments available and encourage more donations as we will continue donating to educational opportunity like Boys Farm.
