Donate to General Fund

PineCone welcomes contributions to support its year-round operations. We have a small staff of three who work out of donated office space at the Martin Marietta Center for the Performing Arts.  Your gift of any level supports our work on IBMA’s World of Bluegrass, concerts, jam sessions, workshops and summer camps for kids. 

Brad Farmer Memorial Scholarship Fund

Brad Farmer was a well loved and talented member of our musical community. He lead jam sessions with an open heart and brought joy to all who shared a tune with him. Brad's parents Cindy and Lester have established a scholarship fund in his honor.

Please consider making a donation today to PineCone in memory of Brad. You can give online by clicking the above link or simply mail a check with Brad's name in the memo line to: PineCone, PO Box 28534, Raleigh, NC 27611.

Your contributions will help pay for lessons for someone who wants to play the music Brad loved and taught to so many.
