Dan Hays talking IBMA

Dan Hays of IBMA on DigiMusicTV.comAs many may be aware already, Kentucky-born Dan Hays is the Executive Director of the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and has been in that position since August 1990.

In a four-part collection of videos Hays discusses his career path, the history of the IBMA, and the future of this growing organization. The total viewing time is about 20 minutes.

The first segment is viewable below, and all four videos are available for viewing courtesy of DigiMusic Tv.com on the brightcove.tv website. Scroll down and select parts two to four in turn.

The website may be worth exploring; I have found videos on some of the ways of playing bass, a series about the Nashville Songwriters Association International, the legal aspects of entertainment law, artist development, a producers bootcamp and a series presented by guitarist Harold Bradley.
