We sat down with Alan Bartram less than a week after he won the 2017 IBMA Bass Player of the Year Award. He was performing with The Traveling McCoury's and The Grateful Ball (with The Jeff Austin Band) at The Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA.
Join us as Alan tells us how he found out he won The Bass Player of The Year Award as he was driving with his Family. He also discusses how he got into the Del McCoury Band. What he was doing before that and how he got turned on to Bluegrass Music.
The Traveling McCoury's are one of the hardest working bands around. Alan is extremely polite and a real gentleman. His success was earned. We were real happy to get the opportunity to sit down him and get to know him.
