Pert Near Sandstone at IBMA

Pert Near Sandstone was one of the invited showcase acts during IBMA’s World of Bluegrass in September, bringing their interesting mix of old time and Americana string band music to Nashville for the first time.

We spoke with band members Kevin Kniebel and and Nate Sipe about how they came to traditional mountain music from their various musical backgrounds, and introducing younger audiences to old time and bluegrass-flavored sounds.

    How many attended their showcase?

    • Darren Sullivan-Koch

      …what can be gained from that information? I’ve seen fantastic bands showcase at IBMA to shamefully empty rooms…

    My God, is there no one left in the IBMA that knows what “Bluegrass” really is??

    A lot can be gain from attendence numbers in our business Darren. Show business…radio, TV, ticket sales at venues, record sales etc. relies very much on numbers. At a time us, The IBMA are failing at drawing attendence to our premier gathering The W.O.B. I think it would be critical to measure the number of people attending all official showcases and at least a thumbnail sketch of the demographic at each one. Finding out what is and isn’t working might help in pulling us out of the red and getting new members. That would be one gain among many others.

    • Darren Sullivan-Koch

      That’s helpful to a degree, but it has no bearing on musical quality. And, it doesn’t take a great number of people — it takes the right people. I’ve been in underattended showcases (who hasn’t?), but more than once one of the attendees was the buyer from a good festival who gave the band a shot, intrigued other bookers, and set the band on their way.

      I think we’re both right!
