June 10, 1957 – January 29, 2005 Remembering Willa Beach- Porter

Remembering Willa Beach- Porter (June 10, 1957 – January 29, 2005), a long-time supporter of bluegrass music and of the Central Texas Bluegrass Association, was a talented beautiful woman, an inspiration to many, she loved entertaining, telling jokes, playing bluegrass on her fiddle, singing songs she wrote and being a giving person. Willa, born in Ohio, performed throughout the United States and lived in Albuquerque NM, Levelland TX, Santa Fe NM, Austin TX, Nashville TN, the east coast, the west coast and many other places. Bluegrass will survive and thrive only if talented young musicians carry it forward into the future. The Central Texas Bluegrass Association has established the Willa Beach-Porter CTBA Scholarship Fund, with income used to pay for scholarship awards to students who have demonstrated a serious interest and performance talent in bluegrass music, and who show a need for financial assistance to support their musical studies.
