Albert Lea Journal

"My total time: it's 26 hours a day; it's on-going - every day almost, we have three thousand members and we put out a publication, festival guide, band directories and a quarterly newsletter," said Chuck Stearman, SPBGMA's president.

And for anyone who's attended a live bluegrass festival like the one SPBGMA is putting on in September, there's no question why people like Stearman and bluegrass promoters across the country are as dedicated as he is.Traditional bluegrass harmonies and instrumentation make for a musical experience unlike any other.

We don't allow any electric instruments," said Stearman.
In SPBGMA's international band competitions, held in Nashville every year, they limit it to the six basic instruments known to bluegrass: bass fiddle (upright bass), five-stringed banjo, mandolin, guitar, fiddle (violin), and Dobro (resonator guitar).
"We've stuck to it; we got a lot of criticism early on, especially with the electric bass," said Stearman.

"Right now there's just an explosion of families wantin' to get into bluegrass," said Stearman."It's one of the greatest things that families can do together."
There are are at least two gifted musical families coming to Albert Lea this fall.
"The Anderson's [pictured right] and then the Bistodeau family, you really want to take note of those two family groups," said Stearman.
