G2 to help celebrate 25 years of IBMA

The G2 Bluegrass Band from Sweden, who leave for the USA in five days' time (see the EBB for 28 May), will be among the Music City Roots Performers at a special reception, dinner, and show in Nashville to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the International Bluegrass Music Association, and to honour the IBMA's founding members.

They will be joining such legendary performers and rising stars as Rodney Dillard, Jesse McReynolds, the Whites, Dale Ann Bradley, Sierra Hull, the Farewell Drifters, and Rockin’ Acoustic Circus. The celebration will be held on Wednesday 23 June 2010 at the Loveless Barn, 8400 Highway 100, Nashville, TN. Attendance is by invitation only.

Extra: Jens Koch of G2 is also quoted in the latest IBMA circular announcing World of Bluegrass 2010, which can be seen here.
