This site was set up to give bluegrass and related music in the UK a genuine web presence. Whilst there are lots of bluegrass sites out there, we are always encountering people online who think there is no bluegrass scene in Britain or believe that they are the only person in the country to play bluegrass instruments.

ukbluegrass aims to act as a web portal to link all the existing online information together and help those who wish to find out more about the British bluegrass scene.

This website provides information about hammered dulcimer events in the Michigan area, where this is a very high concentration of interest for this particular instrument. There is also a repository of sheet music and midi files for traditional and original (tradtionally inspired) songs as well as links to various other resources within and outside of the hammered dulcimer community.

The Folk Federation of NSW contains events and articles about the folk scene in the New South Wales state of Australia. The site's content is predominantly user contributed. If you live in NSW or will be visiting, this is a good resource for finding local acoustic folk activities in the area.
