It’s the biggest show in bluegrass! For five days, downtown Raleigh, NC is host to non-stop music as the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) presents World of Bluegrass, its annual convention/trade show/festival.

On Wednesday and Thursday, September 25 & 26, we presented eighteen of the hottest acts in bluegrass, live from our special stage in room 201 of the Raleigh Convention Center, representing the full range of bluegrass, from traditional to cutting-edge contemporary performers.
