It was in August of 1974 that Adams hosted his first festival in Dahlonega, GA. He says it rained all three days that first year. But it didn’t dampen his enthusiasm for the music, as he now hosts 8 festivals annually.

IBMA Board member, Cindy Baucom, was on hand on Saturday to make the presentation at the 40th annual North Carolina State Bluegrass Festival.

Congratulations, Norman, and thanks for keeping bluegrass music going strong!
