Valley Bluegrass Music Society


Who and What We Are

The Valley Bluegrass Music Society is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes bluegrass music. What is bluegrass music? Wikipedia defines it this way. VBMS was Incorporated as a Society on Aug. 27, 1996. Meetings, which are really jam sessions, were held on Sunday nights at the Aldergrove Legion.

A little history: the first President was Rob Baker, and he is now a resident of Alberta. One of the original board members was George Patton. In September 1997 meetings were moved to the Aldergrove Elks Hall and held there until June 2009. In the fall of 2009, sessions were moved to the basement of the United Church at 5673 200th Street in Langley, and are now held on Friday evenings. from 7-11 PM. But we do take the summer and holidays off so check the calendar.
