One of the events we discussed here on Bluegrass Today during IBMA week in Nashville last month was Jerry Douglas’ Keynote Address to the organization on September 25.
As I mentioned in that post:
His address seemed to focus on three basic themes: bluegrass music is in good shape, it is being noticed by the larger music industry, and we ought to be willing to share it with those outside our circle.
IBMA has obtained Jerry’s permission to make the entire address available online, and we heartily commend it to our readers. It is entitled What Does Playing Bluegrass for 30 Years Do for You, and it can be found on the IBMA web site.
