Rhiannon Giddens (previously winner of the Steve Martin prize for excellence in banjo and bluegrass) gave the keynote address at this year's IBMA. The speech explored the creole history of bluegrass and asks "how do we get more diversity in bluegrass? Which of course, behind the hand, is really, why is bluegrass so white??? But the answer doesn't lie in right now. Before we can look to the future, we need to understand the past."
