Bluegrass on GAC

GAC-TVGAC-TV was a primary sponsor of the IBMA Awards Show last week, and this week they are beginning a run of four episodes of their show Edge of Country, featuring a large number of bluegrass artists.

GAC describes Edge of Country as:

a great mix of bluegrass, Americana, country rock and traditional styles.

The footage was captured by GAC during the IBMA World of Bluegrass week in Nashville. From what I understand, it consists mainly of interviews conducted backstage during Fan Fest.

Some of the time slots are’t all that fantastic, but at this point it’s just nice to see some coverage of the event making to air.

According to the GAC website, the first segment runs tonight at 11 PM EST and then again at 3 AM EST.

The second segment will air only once at 1 PM EST tomorrow.

Similar times are given for the third and fourth episodes, set to air on October 19-20, 2007.
