First – special thanks to BobG for making the connection to get us in the door. Here is the first look at the pictures from the Red Carpet of the International Bluegrass Music Awards. We saw Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Michael Cleveland & Flamkeeper, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, Balsam Range, Sam Bush, Darin & Brooke Aldridge, the Steep Canyon Rangers, Della Mae and many others. We even saw Ricky Skaggs coming to the event on a rickshaw (he skipped the red carpet festivities). Great start to a bluegrass weekend – much more to come.
