Last year, the International Bluegrass Music Association inaugurated the IBMA Momentum Awards. These awards are meant to recognize musicians and industry professionals in the early stages of their bluegrass careers. It is not a peoples’ choice, popularity or member-voted award, but a juried award by notable peers. Essentially, the Momentum Awards recognize the best “up and comers.”

IBMA has announced the nominees for the 2014 Momentum Awards. We are excited to find ourselves in two categories:

  • Performance, Band – Snyder Family Band
  • Performance, Intrumentalist – Zeb Snyder

Winners will be announced at the IBMA World of Bluegrass in September.
