The Clare Bluegrass Association was founded in 1997 in memory of one of the Clare's  finest banjo players,
 Vernon  J. Robicheau.    The objects of the association are to promote the appreciation of Bluegrass music, develop local musicianship in the field of bluegrass, establish contacts between musicians of all levels, showcase local bluegrass musicians and create social gatherings for all association members and their guests.
 Another Object of the association was to establish the "Vernon J Robicheau Memorial Fund".

The memorial fund helps young aspiring musicians by offering music lessons for acoustic instruments. The 1st memorial concert was held on October 12, 1997 and the first set of music lessons began in October, 1998.   These lessons are held in Meteghan and still going strong, twice a year once in the Spring and again in the fall.
