ReidF14Congratulations to Gary B. Reid, author of The Music of the Stanley Brothers, who was named Bluegrass Print/Media Person of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA).

Gary Reid was awarded a luncheon on October 1, 2015, in Raleigh, NC, during the World of Bluegrass Conference.

A leading authority on the Stanley Brothers, Gary Reid is not only an author but a performer who brings Carter Stanley to life in a one-man-show, “A Life of Sorrow.”

The Music of the Stanley Brothers augments Reid’s vast knowledge of their music with interviews, documents ranging from books to folios sold by the brothers at shows, and the words of Ralph Stanley, former band members, guest musicians, session producers, songwriters, and bluegrass experts.

The book is part of the series Music in American Life.
