The Davidson Brothers have established the Australian Youth Bluegrass Scholarship to encourage and nurture singers and musicians who show exceptional talent and dedication in the field of Bluegrass Music. There are many young people in Australia who have rare musical gifts, where a small nudge in the right direction may help pave the way toward their musical dreams.
The 2012 Australian Youth Bluegrass Scholarship recipient will win a cash prize of $1,500 which they may wish to put toward a regional tour, a recording project, a new instrument, enrollment fees at the CMAA Academy of Country Music, or a flight to Nashville Tennessee so they can attend the IBMA World of Bluegrass convention.
The recipient will also receive a recording package generously donated by the folks at Pacific International Music – one professionally recorded song of the winner’s choice, recorded and mixed to international broadcast standard, featuring the winner along with Australian and Nashville session players. The winner will also be presented with a trophy for themselves to keep and a perpetual trophy.
Note that the closing date for applications is Friday, 9th December 2011
