In episode #3 of The GrassCast we continue our theme from last week as we share excerpts from interviews we conducted with a number of bluegrass personalities. We asked them to share their thoughts about the 2005 IBMA trade show and fan fest. With 2005 being the first year for the event to be held in Nashville, TN, there were a lot of positive and negative responses. We previously posted about this topic here. Now you can hear what the bluegrass artists, songwriters, and business persons in attendance thought, in their own words. Originally this was to be the last part in this series, but this episode ran long (24 min) and we still didn’t include everything. Part 3 will be along next week. Look for it early, due to Thanksgiving.

UPDATE: Please leave comments and let us know if the length of this episode, along with the increased file size, is a detriment to downloading it. We aim to keep each episode to 10 minutes, but some may run long. Would this have been better split into two discreet episodes? Let us know what you think.
