Darrell Brothers to host 2015 IBMA Songwriters Showcase

IBMAEach year the International Bluegrass Music Association presents a Songwriter Showcase during their World Of Bluegrass Convention. A number of songwriters are chosen each year by a selection committee to perform their songs before the assembled audience of artists, producers, and other writers.

The Darrell Brothers, a comedy duo of singers and songwriters, will serve as hosts, and will surely keep the mood light for the showcase to be held on Wednesday, September 30 at 9:40 a.m. in the Raleigh Convention Center. Bluegrass fans will remember the Brothers for their hilarious singles, Mountain Twerker and Healthcare Dot Gov.

Songs to be performed include:

  • Grandpa’s Overalls – Lisa Bushman, Dale Ann Bradley & Joe Newberry
  • Anyway – Louisa Branscomb
  • The Mountain Wayfarers – Andrew Preston
  • Rules of My Heart – Annalisa Tornfelt
  • Ain’t No Good Goodbye – Teresa Neal
  • Deer in the Headlights Look – Buddy Guido
  • So Long, Lindytown – David Morris & Chris Dockins
  • Someday – Melody Williamson
  • Southern Train – Gary Alan Ferguson
  • How Alone – Rob Russell

Registration for Wednesday is required to attend the showcase.
