SPBGMA 2012 awards

Thanks to our friend Lilly Pavlak of the Czech Republic and Switzerland, who sends this link to the list of award winners at the 38th Annual Awards of the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA), which took place at the SPBGMA national convention a week ago in Nashville.

The SPBGMA awards can be compared with the 2011 IBMA awards, though the two systems don't use exactly the same categories. However, as some people have criticised the IBMA awards for going too often to a limited number of artists, it's interesting to see how many of the same artists receive the awards given by a differently constituted organisation with a different membership.
