If you aren’t heading to Nashville for IBMA’s World of Bluegrass events, there are at least three easy ways to keep up without leaving the comfort of your computer. Blogger Ted Lehmann (who spent the first years of his life in the building where I live!) has already posted a thorough preview. Follow him on Facebook or via his blog for new posts as the Business Conference, Awards Show and Fan Fest unfold. He’s a persuasive writer. You may just decide to go.
The IBMA Awards Show will be broadcast LIVE from the Ryman Auditorium on Thursday, September 29, 2011 starting at 7:30 PM (Central Standard Time) on Sirius XM Satellite Radio (Bluegrass Junction, Channel 61). Sam Bush is hosting and performances from many nominees are already confirmed. If anybody is willing to host a listening party, please post a message below or message me on FB for help organizing.
A WAMU Bluegrass Country favorite of mine, Katy Daly, announced last week which artists will be hosted by WAMU and broadcast live over the internet. Monday (9/26) and Friday (9/3) are posted here. The full week is on WAMU’s FB page.
