IBMA members can win a sea cruise

If you are an active member of the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) as of 27 September 2012, you have a chance to win an oceanview cabin for two (value $2,030) on Mountain Song at Sea’s Bluegrass Cruise. This sea-going festival features an amazing lineup: the David Grisman Sextet, Del McCoury Band, Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, Tim O'Brien and Bryan Sutton, Kruger Brothers, Peter Rowan, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, Travelin' McCourys, Shannon Whitworth, Della Mae, and Town Mountain.

The draw for the winner will be held on stage during Fan Fest at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass in Nashville, Tenn., on 28-30 September 2012. The round-trip cruise (1-4 Feb. 2013) on the luxurious Norwegian Sky will be from Miami to a private island in the Bahamas, with concerts, artist collaborations and jams, and plenty of interaction between artists and fans in beer and wine tastings, workshops, games, and a poker tournament with cruise hosts the Steep Canyon Rangers, IBMA Entertainers of the Year.

There's a 10% discount for IBMA members; the IBMA is also offering up to the end of 2012 a discount bonus for professional membership. More information is here and on the IBMA e-newsletter.
