IBMA's World of Bluegrass 2009 - and EWOB

The IBMA's World of Bluegrass 2009 will be held in Nashville, TN, from 28 September to 4 October 2009, comprising the Business Conference, Awards Show, and Fan Fest. You don't need to be an IBMA member to attend! Complete event info and a link for registration can be found here.

The IBMA have also produced a fine video showing the reasons why people keep coming to World of Bluegrass. Plenty of familiar faces can be seen, and outstanding music can be heard, here. (It sounds as if the opening music is 'The old mountaineer' from Michael Cleveland's latest CD, with Jens Kruger on banjo.)

The current issue of the IBMA's e-newsletter includes a report on EWOB 2009 by Richard Hurst, chairperson of the EBMA, with special mention of the EWOB Festival, and a link to the Jan de Mooy photos on the Bluegrass Blog, as well as other international news.
