IBMA is a weeklong musical frenzy of epic proportions, taking over a whole city and bringing people together in the spirit of bluegrass. We think this year’s was the best yet!
We kicked off the week in style with Jim Lauderdale at the Governor’s Mansion, had a few awesome showcases, played the streefest and made the news on WRAL TV, and sold out the Pour House! Oh, and we happened to meet Jon Fishman of Phish so ya we feel pretty darn good right now...
Thanks to International Bluegrass Music Association, World of Bluegrass, PineCone - Piedmont Council of Traditional Music, and the city of Raleigh for all their hard work!!
We also had the opportunity to chat with journalist Derek Halsey for an article featured on Grammy.com! Derek sat down with Jesse for a quick chat after a packed performance at the City Plaza stage early Friday evening.
