Bluegrass thrived indoors

IBMA’s World of Bluegrass a winner

Despite awful weather, crowds come out

Performances at all levels memorable

From left, Jonah Horton, 14, from Wilkesboro, Isaac Ferrell, 17, from South Carolina, Helen Foley, 17, from California, and sisters Frannie, 17, and Cara DiGiovanni, 16, from Tennessee, rehearse in an empty room on the lower level of the Raleigh Convention Center on Thursday. They were selected to represent their Kids On Bluegrass group and perform for about 1.5 hours at the IBMA Awards Show Party at The Memorial Auditorium across the street. Gathered from across the country, the five quickly practiced their harmonies and techniques together before getting dressed for the show. The IBMA will go on this week, but all performances will be indoors due to the rainy weather.
Time to vote in Raleigh, Cary, Durham
