The 28th Annual IBMA Awards Show will be hosted by Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, acclaimed artists in their respective careers and GRAMMY winners in their duo work. The theme for this Awards Show is The Bluegrass Songbook, a common language spoken by bluegrass musicians the whole world over, and a context for one-of-a-kind pairings of stellar musicians in musical performance that bridge styles, generations and borders. We're excited to present an evening of thrilling collaborations you could only find at the IBMA Awards Show, playing the songs we all love best.

The awards recognize outstanding achievement and pioneering efforts in almost two dozen categories, and the show features outstanding performances by the best in bluegrass and once-in-a-lifetime moments, such as Tony Rice's indescribably poignant Hall of Fame acceptance speech in 2013.  The 2017 Awards Show will be held Thursday, September 28 at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, Memorial Hall in the City of Oaks, lovely Raleigh, NC.
