Stringdusters Awarded @ IBMA

The Infamous Stringdusters, featuring monster resoist and reso-nation member Andy Hall received two very deserved awards at this years IBMA awards ceremony in Nashville, TN.

The 'Dusters  pulled in 'Song of The Year' with the title track to their Sugar Hill debut Fork In The Road.  I highly reccommend this project for bluegrass enthusiasts in general and reso enthusiasts in particular.

Joining the likes of some of the biggest bands in bluegrass, the 'Dusters also received the nod for 'Emerging Artist of The Year.'  Former winners include The Grascals, King Wilkie, Nickel Creek, Mountain Heart and Blue Highway.

We're really proud to see Andy and the boys earn recognition for their work.  I'm sure this is the first of many IBMA trophys for the 'Dusters mantle.

By the way, seeing Andy Hall's name in the 'Dobro Player of The Year' nominee list would have been entirely appropriate.

2007 ResoGat Photos

Pam Davis sent me a link to photos from this years' Gathering Of Resonateurs. This was the third year for the event since it's relocation from the Pennsylvania homeplace of Dobro inventor descendants John and Margaret Dopyera.  This years turnout was even better than the last as the event continues to draw reso enthusiasts from across the country.
