Shout and Shine: A Celebration of Diversity in Bluegrass

September 26, 2017

The Bluegrass Situation and PineCone are excited to announce the second annual Shout & Shine: A Celebration of Diversity in Bluegrass showcase at World of Bluegrass. The event, which was created to foster representation and encourage inclusion of the diverse artists, musicians and professionals who love and create bluegrass and roots music, is a part of IBMA's official showcase schedule/lineup, the Bluegrass Ramble. Shout & Shine's lineup includes the Tyler Williams Band, the Ebony Hillbillies, Sam Gleaves, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, the Otsuka and Watanabe Brothers' Japanese Jam and 2017 IBMA Hall of Fame Inductee Alice Gerrard. There will also be a SuperJam hosted by Emerging Artist of the Year nominees Front Country. Each artist was carefully chosen to celebrate and encourage diversity within the bluegrass and roots community. In addition to working toward universal inclusion of LGBTQ+ and POC (people of color), Shout & Shine recognizes the importance of representing people with disabilities and working toward universal access for all people at music events, clubs and festivals.
