Sister act

In my coverage of last year's IBMA conference in Nashville, I featured a young band looking to break into the festival circuit. The Lovell Sisters, three teenage bluegrassers from Georgia, were getting a tryout in the Grey Fox suite during the conference. They charmed the small audience, and got a verbal commitment to play the 2006 festival.

Now here it is and the Lovells are on the main stage and are living up to their promise. Their musicianship, singing and stage presence point to be bright future for these girls. After their breakthrough here, I would expect to see them on many other festival stages in the years ahead.

King Wilkie is coming up next. I'm still waiting for brother Walt, who is going on two hours late as I type this.
