Sierra’s mandolin playing is amazing!  I would have liked to see her win mandolin player of the year, even though Adam Steffey is extremely deserving.

Tony Rice with Mountain Heart – IBMA World of Bluegrass 2008

Tony Rice with Mountain Heart - IBMA World of Bluegrass 2008

What an amazing treat!  IBMA was fortunate enough this year to have the legendary Tony Rice accompany Mountain Heart for after hours and official showcases.   Between the 2 sets, a good number of classic Tony tunes were covered such as Manzanita, Old Train, Blue Railroad Train, and Nine Pound Hammer.  Mountain Heart is an amazing band and Tony seemed to be having a blast… definitely the highlight of the entire IBMA conference!

Andy Leftwich - IBMA World of Bluegrass 2008 - Nashville, TN

Andy always sounds spectacular… whether with Ricky, Three Ring Circle, the Whites or anybody.  I’d like to see Andy get more recognition at IBMA in the future, he’s one of the best out there in my opinion.
