Not there yet

It's been a year and a half since the VBA stopped gathering on Tuesday evenings for our Bluegrass and Old Time Jam circles. We hope you haven't given up on us because we're thinking of you lots. Our hope is that we can get back to playing music indoors without the risk of spreading or contracting a potentially deadly virus.

We don't think we've reached that target yet given capacity restrictions and having to mask indoors. We suspect many of you wouldn't feel safe to come even if we could figure out all the protocols necessary to meet the current regulations. As a result, we are delaying this season until conditions permit us to re-open. We don't know when that will be, but we're hopeful that this 4th wave will subside quickly.

The business of the VBA continues and we are required to hold an Annual General Meeting. This year, the meeting will be held online via Zoom on Tuesday September 28th, 2021 at 7:30pm. We ask that you put this date and time in your calendar now. The AGM materials and Zoom link will be sent out in the week prior to the AGM.

Immediately after the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting for the VBA, the Sooke River Bluegrass Festival Society will hold their AGM as part of the same Zoom meeting. Your VBA membership is shared with our sister festival organization which operates the Cowichan Valley Bluegrass Festival.

If you have any questions please reach out to any Board Member.

Stay safe . . .

Message regarding COVID-19

Hello out there in COVID-19 land. The VBA continues to be on its temporary shut down of activities until we are permitted to resume our regular programming.

We hope you're all safe and doing your best to follow the distancing rules and virus avoidance recommendations. Until then we hope you're finding new and positive ways to keep your spirits up (such as play and listen to music).

All our regular Tuesday night events are cancelled until further notice.

On behalf our Board, we thank you for your understanding as we navigate through all this uncertainty. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at

Stay well,

Victoria Pang
President, Victoria Bluegrass Association
