HABOT is one of the largest gathering of acoustic musicians north of the river. The club meets every 3rd Friday during the months of October through April.

Membership

Though our monthly bluegrass shows and jam sessions are free, administrative duties and building space does carry some cost. Many of our friends choose to become a member. At just $7 per year, membership gives you the opportunity to ensure HABOT can provide great entertainment to all, and provides you a monthly newsletter filled with bluegrass information from around the area. HABOT does have a membership board that meets regularly to provide guidance on club activities, control organizational costs, and oversee volunteer support.

  1. Hello, I am a fiddler player who just moved back to KC from Denver last month. I have a gig at a private party but I don’t know any guitar flatpickers in the area yet. It’s a short duo gig with me on fiddle and I can pay the guitarist $200. Looking for a competent picker who knows tunes and is professional. Gig is Saturday March 21. Please reach me at 303-842-1242. Thanks, Adam Galblum
