2010 IBMA 'After hours' showcases

Darwin Davidson, radio presenter and bluegrass photographer who was present at this year's EWOB Festival, writes on the IBMA-L list:

At the upcoming 2010 IBMA World of Bluegrass, I will again be hosting three 'After hours' showcase functions. As I have done in previous years, I want to concentrate on showcasing performers, at the Bronzewound Showcase, who are interested in expanding their horizons; such as those who don't currently have a label affiliation or strong publicity outlets. Also those who are interested in getting exposure to more festival promoters, primarily in the North-east USA.

I will be doing the after-hours showcase on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights.

If you are in one of these categories, or know of a band or performer who is, and are planning on being at the 2010 IBMA WOB, please contact me off-list.

Darwin's work as a bluegrass photographer can be sampled here. His article for the IBMA newsletter International Bluegrass about EWOB 2010 can be read here. He concludes: 'Everybody at the festival is so welcoming, it’s definitely worth the long airplane ride just to get to the Netherlands... So… don’t put off a trip to the EWOB for six years like I did. Make your reservations right now for 2011: June 2-4. All the folks there will make you very welcome. They sure did for me.'
