Pacific Bluegrass and Heritage Society
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Pacific Bluegrass and Heritage Society (PBHS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of Bluegrass and Old Time music through regular jams, workshops, concerts, and other special events. To keep updated on PBHS activities, refer to the calendar of events section of this website, and to find out more about the fantastic performers coming to town this year, visit our concert listings page.
Composed of over 200 individuals and operated on a volunteer basis, the PBHS always welcomes new members, as well as people who are just curious or just want to listen. If you play an instrument and are interested in Bluegrass, Old Time, or derivative forms of these traditions, there are always plenty of people to jam with on all levels. September through June, weekly jams are held upstairs at the ANZA Club, and every month more mellow-tempo folk can look forward to Sue Malcolm's Slow Pitch Jam.
In addition to jam nights, there are also opportunities for members to perform material on open stage nights, and to participate in various workshops relating to Bluegrass and Old Time music.
