The IBMA is now accepting applications from artists who would like to be considered for an official showcase spot during the 2009 World Of Bluegrass convention in Nashville, September 28 – October 4, 2009.
Keep in mind that these showcase opportunities are not designed solely for new acts. Here is the way the IBMA board describes them:
The showcases are designed to introduce any one or all of the following to the bluegrass industry:
- Emerging talent capable and willing to broaden their market
- Established bands who have significant changes in their act
- Artists who have significant, new recorded product
Submissions are not limited to IBMA members, but they must join the organization prior to next year’s event if selected.
Full application details and the address where they should be sent can be found on the IBMA site.
