    Default 2021 Mike Auldridge Instrumental Composition Contest

    Attention, bluegrass and old-time musicians: This year's Mike Auldridge Instrumental Composition Contest is underway. The DC Bluegrass Union is accepting entries until Sunday, October 10th. Tunes judged as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will earn prizes of $500, $250, and $100, respectively. You can review the terms of the contest and the steps for entering it at

    Honoring the memory and music of the dobro master from the DC area, the Mike Auldridge contest was started in 2017 as a showcase specifically for instrumental compositions. Judging is based on the tunes submitted, not the productions, and without knowing any contestant identities. Winners will be announced on November 1st. You can listen to last year's winning entries at:

    Any proceeds from the contest, after prizes are awarded, help the DC Bluegrass Union's work to promote the music regionally through performance and education. We greatly appreciate the positive response to the contest shown by bluegrass and old-time instrumentalists all around the country. Not sure if your tune is sufficiently “bluegrass-related”? Direct your questions about that or about anything else to: mikeauldridgecontest-at-gmail-dot-com.
