Festival favorite Tim O'Brien nabs Grammy

The early returns are in for some of the lesser Grammy awards, and festival favorite Tim O'Brien has walked off with the statue for best traditional folk album for his 2005 release Fiddler's Green, beating out The Chieftains, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Tom Paxton, and Jo-el Sonnier. Fiddler's Green, featuring traditional songs such as Pretty Fair Maiden in the Garden and originals such as Look Down the Lonesome Road, was one of a tandem of albums released last fall on the Sugar Hill label that were meant to explore the roots and branches of American folk music.

Alison Krauss and Union Station won two awards for best vocal by a duo or group and best country instrumental, both for Lonely Runs Both Ways (Rounder). The Del McCoury Band picked up the Grammy for best bluegrass album for The Company We Keep (Sugar Hill). Congratulations to all the winners.

I would very much appreciate it if you would take the time to have a look at my Insurance blog. If you think that we do have a common goal (which I think we do), then please feel free to post any relevant information to the blog.
