BLUEGRASS: Paisley wins "Male Vocalist" award

Congratulations to local favorite Danny Paisley of Landenberg, who was just named "male vocalist of the year" by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Danny and his band (and his father's band before him), The Southern Grass, have released a new CD, "Weary River," and they perform frequently in Cecil County, Maryland, and throughout the East (although their North Carolina gig was cancelled due to the impending Hurricane Matthew).
Also recognized by the IBMA was the 44th Annual Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival, held over Labor Day weekend in Woodstown, N.J. Congrats to the organizers, Brandywine Friends of Old-Time Music! It turns out that Newlin Township resident Gail Honeycutt Abel and I both attended the (very windy) festival; too bad we didn't run into each other.
