Kansas Prairie Pickers Association

The Kansas Prairie Pickers Association is a music organization in northeast Kansas interested in the preservation of Bluegrass and Old Time acoustic music. We get together on the fourth Sunday of October through April at the Community Center in Auburn, Kansas, with open jam sessions and stage performances by area bands and other groups. On the second weekend in June we have our annual festival at Prairie Lake, close to Holton, Kansas. Our members are in several area bluegrass bands and are available for hire. Hope you browse through our web site and get a feel for who we are. Better yet, come on out and jam with us a while!

We had our chili feed so the pickin' year has begun! Our Auburn jam starts up with the 4th Sunday in October and then once a month until our festival next summer. We're hoping for another great year of music. The next festival is the KBA Winter Bluegrass Festival in Wichita.

Check our calendar for upcoming events. Support your local music and have a good time while you're doing it.

Keep checking back for more info on the local acoustic scene.

Happy pickin'
