News from IBMA headquarters
Good songs are the heart and the future of any musical genre, and IBMA will once again focus attention on 10 selected songwriters and their material during World of Bluegrass, to be hosted in Nashville, Tennessee September 27 – October 3, 2010. The exact date and time of the Songwriter Showcase, sponsored by ASCAP, will be announced in a future issue of International Bluegrass and also at this website.
The IBMA Songwriter Showcase is not a contest.Â Its purpose is to present new, original bluegrass songs to artists, producers and record label reps looking for new material, as well as to other industry reps in the audience.Â Both veteran and novice songwriters are invited and encouraged to submit songs.Â Songwriters who presented original material at past IBMA Songwriter Showcases are not prohibited from submitting a CD again for this year, but they should present a different song.
