Due to concerns about COVID-19, all BFMS in-person events have been cancelled through March 31, 2021. The BFMS Board will re-evaluate the situation periodically and decide if further cancellations are necessary.

Please help support our Callers and Musicians

BFMS encourages our members to donate to musicians and callers who had their BFMS sponsored gigs cancelled due to coronavirus. We are no longer accepting donations through our website, but CDSS has established a website for donations to musicians and callers.
