Chris Pandolfi has posted video of the Keynote Address he delivered last Tuesday (9/27) at IBMA’s 2011 World Of Bluegrass convention. After a brief introduction from Craig Havighurst, Chris launches into the thoughts behind the Bluegrass Manifesto which he published earlier this year.
Both his address and the Manifesto behind it deal with the decision by The Infamous Stringdusters to avoid the term bluegrass in describing their music to promoters. There is a great deal to chew on here, and Chris deals with the topic with grace and wisdom.
The video runs just short of an hour and was shot by Drew Becker. It’s well worth the investment of your time.
