The Manitoba Old-Tyme and Bluegrass Society (MOBS) was incorporated as a non-profit organization on February 14, 1991. Its mandate is to preserve and promote old-time and bluegrass music fostering the use of acoustic stringed instruments. MOBS is run by a volunteer board of directors. All people (members or not) are welcome to enjoy bluegrass jamming at various locations. Camp-outs with workshops, open mike events and professional performances are held throughout the year. Members receive the “Dill Pickle Rag” which is our monthly newsletter. It contains details on a variety of bluegrass related events and ideas.
Message from the President
Hi Folks. Last month I wrote about it being a tough winter so far. HOLY SMOKE, was that ever an understatement. As I write this, (on what may be the coldest day of the winter) it is colder here than Yellowknife NWT and with the wind-chill factored in, as cold as the North Pole. I don't have very much to report on this month other than the concert and jam at the Transcona Legion March 28. A new Bluegrass group “One More Time” is playing. Bob Whittaker may correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this is the last Legion concert jam of the season, so come on out, enjoy the show and have some fun jamming. Also, at risk of sounding like a broken record, I hope to see many of you out to the Annual General Meeting Sunday March 23 1:00 pm at the Transcona Legion.
