Rules for consideration when writing in responses, nominated artists:
- Must play a significant amount of bluegrass material
- Maintain an active touring schedule
- Have a reasonable level of national awareness/reputation
Polls will close at 11:59 PM ET on 12/25/2013. Artists with the highest total votes will be announced at JamGrass.net, Facebook and Twitter.

On Novermber 26th, I posted a summary on the first 30-days of JamGrass.net. Since then the site has experienced a significant growth in readership. Total unique visitors to the site has increased about 350% in just 15-days, thanks in large part to content coverage from our friends at JamBase, The Grateful Web, YEMblog, Dreamspider Publicity & Events, Margaret Willard, Bluegrass Today, and many supporters in the Facebook and Twitter communities. The most popular content to date:
- Pondering the Yonder – 30 Years of PHISHgrass
- Minnesota’s Trampled by Turtles Brings the Cool to Athens, GA
- Soul/Funk Supergroup The Nth Power Visits Atlanta’s Vinyl on Sunday
- JamGrass.net Recommends – Tony Rice
- Leftover Salmon Couldn’t Be “Better” at The Variety Playhouse on Halloween
By far, the most popular video on our YouTube channel features Dave Rawlings Machine covering the Grateful Dead’s “Deal.” Thanks to JamBase.com, the video generated more than 4K views to date.
