“Rivers And Roads” Won Two 2018 IBMA Awards!
THANK YOU!!! We won TWO International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards at the annual World of Bluegrass Awards Show in Raleigh, NC on Thursday, September 27! First Squirrel Hunters won Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year and we thank Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer (10 String Symphony) and Alison Brown for joining us on the tune and Katie Hartford Hogue for giving us permission to also include spoken words and music by her late father John Hartford. The last award of the show was for Album of the Year and our recording Rivers & Roads won! What a great night! Thank you to Compass Records, to our fabulous producer Alison Brown and to all of our other friends who performed on the recording with us, including Bobby Osborne, Becky Buller, Molly Tuttle, Josh Williams, Justin Moses and Mark Schatz. We also sincerely thank all of the IBMA members who voted for us and who continue to support us on our musical journey. These are our fourth and fifth IBMA awards: we received two awards for Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year and Recorded Event of the Year from our 2014 Compass Records release Country Boy: A Bluegrass Tribute To John Denver and one award for Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year from our 2016 Compass Records release Long I Ride.
