NASHVILLE (Feb 28, 2022) – The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) has named Ally Lubera as their new Communications Director.
Hailing from the Windy City, Ally Lubera was raised with a deep appreciation for American roots music. As a performing artist herself, Lubera has played on prominent stages across the United States, including the Chicago Blues Festival, the House of Blues, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In 2017, she was featured in an opening act on Bon Jovi’s “This House Is Not For Sale” Tour.
Lubera earned her Bachelor of Music degree from Belmont University, where she performed in the Bluegrass Ensemble and Commercial Music Showcase. In addition, Lubera served as an IBMA intern, assisting with communications during the 2018 IBMA World of Bluegrass season. She is the music director at New Creation Church and a songwriting instructor at Interlochen Center for the Arts. In addition, Lubera regularly performs at some of Nashville’s most iconic venues, such as the Bluebird Café and 3rd and Lindsley.
Lubera replaces Casey Campbell, who recently stepped down to spend more time making music on the road and in the studio. She will manage IBMA communications, including the IBMA website, social media accounts, newsletter, programs, and publications and will focus on the association’s visibility and brand integrity throughout various association campaigns.
“Ally’s experience as a musician, songwriter, and former team member have helped her hit the ground running with IBMA” says Executive Director, Pat Morris. “She brings an extensive knowledge of the history, culture and community of bluegrass, and I look forward to seeing exciting contributions from her in this vital role. She will be instrumental in helping IBMA communicate with our members and the bluegrass world, and will help us move forward strategically to raise the visibility and reach of bluegrass.”
