The International Bluegrass Music Association has announced the artists invited to showcase during the main stage events at World Of Bluegrass 2011. These acts are chosen by a committee selected by the IBMA Board, who listen to dozens of recordings each year to find acts both willing and able to best take advantage of this promotional opportunity.
They will each be given a 20 minute segment to perform before the assembled decision-makers in the bluegrass recording, event management, radio and media sectors of the business.
Here are the 2011 showcase artists:
Six other artists/acts will be chosen, sponsored by their record labels, to also be featured during WOB. The event runs from September 26-October 2, 2011 in Nashville.
