I Draw Slow garner two IBMA Momentum Award nominations

The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) announced this morning the nominations for this year's IBMA awards. The categories include the Momentum Awards, which focus on artists and business people who are in the early years of their careers in bluegrass music. The full list is on the IBMA website and also on Bluegrass Today; and the BIB notes with pleasure that Dublin's own I Draw Slow have two Momentum Award nominations - one for the band as a whole, and one for Louise Holden as vocalist.

I Draw Slow now have three albums out on the respected Pinecastle label, which has just proudly announced their nomination, along with those of other artists on the Pinecastle roster. Albums and live shows alike have been warmly received: plenty of enthusiastic reviews are on their website. The band are now touring in North America, and were performing last weekend (8-9 Aug.) at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival in Alberta, Canada. After their return to Ireland, they are scheduled to play on 17 Oct. 2015 at the Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Dublin 14.
