Thank you for your efforts in promoting and preserving this great genre. As a bluegrass performer I feel it is important to raise folks awareness of this wonderful music. This is no longer the era of bib overalls and straw hats.The harmonies in this music is like no other. The family traditions and models set forth inside this music seems to bring people together. We get many compliments on our performances about folks feeling like they've become a part of our family, like they're a part of something else. We promote other bands in our area, cause when they succeed, we succeed.
Once again, thank you.
