This is my final report from last week’s IBMA World of Bluegrass covering the the last two days,known as Wide Open Bluegrass. If you haven’t seen them yet, the first two covering the Business Conference and the Awards Shows precede it. I think the three, seen together, are as comprehensive as two people can manage and still have fun and learn at the event. I look forward to your comments.

Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival had a rousing renewal at Hebron Lions Fairgrounds in Hebron, CT last weekend. This is the second of two posts. Posunk was named IBMA Event of the Year in 2010 and then went through some bad times, forced to change venue one year and then cancel the next. The success of this revived event proves there are second acts. Check it out!

The Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival will run from August 7 – August 9 at its new home on the Hebron Lions Fairgrounds in Hebron, CT. Boasting a strong lineup and Roger Moss’s well-known artistic and creative wizardry this 2010 IBMA Event of the Year deserves strong support and will be well worth it. It’s a comprehensive festival with all the bells and whistles in an ideal new setting. Easy to get to and a fine event.
