Award-winning fiddler Laurie Lewis and Bluegrass Hall of Famer Del McCoury have been announced as hosts for the 23rd Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards, scheduled for 7:30 pm Sept. 27 at the Ryman Auditorium.
The IBMA Awards take place during the IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Business Conference and Fan Fest week, which runs September 24-30 in Nashville. Nominated talent, voted by members of the IBMA, will be announced next month (8/15) at a special press conference at The Loveless Barn.
“This will be a very significant and poignant event, as the bluegrass community comes together to recognize and honor its own, and to pay tribute to some of the pioneers we’ve lost this year, including the great Earl Scruggs,” said Lewis.
The IBMA Awards Show will be broadcast live on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and syndicated to more than 300 U.S. markets and 14 foreign networks. Program directors and station managers are able to sign up as affiliates here. For more information, including tickets, visit www.ibma.org.
As previously announced, the series of IBMA events will move to Raleigh, NC for three years, from 2013-2015.
