The saying goes something like “better late than never”, and so I hope it works here as well. Please find below Lucy Smith’s report of the CBA suite in Raleigh, NC at the International Bluegrass Music Association convention. I got back from the CBA fall campout Sunday afternoon and meant to post it then, but made the mistake of sitting down and falling asleep…..jamming, camping, and driving back home from Lodi will do that to you. I asked our webmaster to let this run Tuesday and hopefully it will go as planned because this is a must read report.
IBMA RALEIGH 2014:
The Epicenter of World-Class Bluegrass!
It's been a full 10 days since I returned from a life-changing musical, social, and very personal experience at the International Bluegrass Music Association's Convention and Wide-Open Bluegrass Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina, and as the new-at-the-helm leader of the California Bluegrass Association's host team for this event, I wanted to share some of the highlights of this magical week.
