In case you missed out on all the action, The Triangle Beat was on hand for the 2014 Wide Open Bluegrass Festival held in Raleigh. For an entire week Raleigh was taken over by the sound of banjos and perfect harmonies created by the 50+ bands that performed throughout the city. While previously held in Lexington, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee, it became more and more evident just why the IMBA has chosen Raleigh, NC as it's home through 2018.
There was non-stop bluegrass action that included bluegrass rambles during the week, the 2014 IMBA Awards Show, and lastly two jam packed days of music on the streets of downtown Raleigh. It was an honor to be able to capture some of the best moments of this year's festival, so as you patiently wait for the return of more banjo, enjoy some of our shots of this year's events.
