The DC Area Bluegrass List (DCAB-L) is an email listserver much like the BGRASS-L list.
The list is hosted and owned by Debbie Durant.

NOTE: The DCAB-L is hosted on Google Groups. See below on how to join DCAB-L exists to promote and support discussion of bluegrass-related topics within the Washington DC/Baltimore area bluegrass music community (DC/VA/WVA/PA/MD), which is arguably THE most active, creative, and productive bluegrass community in the world. In short, DCAB-L is designed to provide a forum for all sorts of bluegrass-oriented networking and communication for the DC bluegrass scene. What might you read on this list? Well, the DCAB-L serves as an online bulletin board for the DC region's bluegrass community. Postings might include anything relevant to the DC regional bluegrass scene: music news, announcements of upcoming regional gigs/events/performances, music-related classifieds, constructive discussion of controversial bluegrass-oriented subjects, etc. In fact, discussion of ANY issue impacting the DC regional bluegrass community, or the DC scene's impact on bluegrass throughout the world, is highly encouraged. However, inflammatory, disruptive, or potentially illegal posts (flaming, mean-spirited libelous or damaging innuendo, libel, blatantly commercial non-bluegrass spamming, etc.) consitute grounds for suspension or expulsion from the list, AT THE MODERATOR'S DISCRETION. By all means, be vocal, opinionated, and don't hold back. But please - play nice, and keep it bluegrass-oriented.
