The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) recently held its 2014 awards show in Raleigh, NY in early October and many of our Winter Village performers were selected for awards. Jason Carter, fiddler for The Travelin’ McCoury’s, won the fiddle player of the year. Jason was featured in Strings Magazine recently. 2014 headliners Balsam Range won Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Band of the Year. Balsam’s lead singer Buddy Melton won male vocalist of the year. 2014 and 2010 headliner Claire Lynch, with Louisa Branscombe, won song of the year for Dear Sister.
Here is a hot number featuring Jason and The Travelin’ McCourys – The Bluegrass Breakdown.
