Rhiannon Giddens' Keynote Inspires Packed House

Rhiannon Giddens, 2016 Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Bluegrass and Banjo recipient, offered a well-researched call for bringing diversity back to bluegrass at IBMA's Business Conference.

Her talk was easily the most talked-about event of the conference.
