Shout & Shine Online is our fifth annual showcase celebrating equity and inclusion in bluegrass and roots music!
For five years now BGS and our partners at PineCone have used our voices, resources, and positivity to lift up and celebrate diversity in bluegrass and roots music through the Shout & Shine showcase. This year, the event’s 5th annual iteration will follow a format more suitable for a worldwide pandemic — with an all-online showcase as part of IBMA’s Virtual World of Bluegrass!
Shout & Shine Online will feature performances by: Amythyst Kiah, Tray Wellington Band, Sunny War, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, Brandi Waller-Pace, Rissi Palmer, Kaïa Kater, and Stephanie Anne Johnson. Meet the full lineup here.
Shout & Shine Online’s roster is curated by performing musician and Decolonizing the Music Room founder and Executive Director, Brandi Waller-Pace. Shout & Shine Online will take place right here at 2 pm ET Saturday, October 3. (Watch the broadcast in full above.) At the time of the showcase, viewers were able to tune in via Facebook, YouTube, PineCone’s channels, and via IBMA’s conference platform, Swapcard.
Shout & Shine Online is made possible by these generous partners and sponsors: Visit Raleigh, the Raleigh Convention Center, Ear Trumpet Labs, IBMA, IVPR, Pre-War Guitars, Jamie Dawson and ERA Dream Living Realty, and Straight Up Strings.
