Refocus, Reconnect, Reimagine. 

As we emerge from the pandemic, we have the opportunity to refocus ourselves and our careers, to reconnect with one another, and to reimagine what bluegrass can do. Challenge is opportunity, and IBMA World of Bluegrass 2021 will provide a stage for embracing it.

You’ll hear from veterans with decades of industry knowledge as well as newcomers with fresh approaches to the bluegrass business model.
