Sorry I'm tardy, been busy on the campaign trail...

Looks like Dailey & Vincent were the toast of IBMA this year. I'm ignorant of this duo, but I see my friend Sacha72 is a top listener at the "and" varient. Of course she's on top of the best in the biz. Promo says "Jamie Dailey, the taller one, is an alum of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Darrin Vincent spent a decade with Ricky Skaggs." I'll buy that cred.

I did my first bluegrass festival this year (as disclosed in previous journal)--the one-time nominee for event of the year Minnesota Bluegrass & Old Time Music Assn summer shindig. Saw Michael Cleveland there, as it started to pour rain. Looks like Maine got the nod for their 07 effort at least in part in recognition of their final festival this year. The sponsor said she wanted to go out on the top of their game. I suppose more of us should pay attention to that advice this election season.
