Influential members of the southern New England bluegrass community were inducted into the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance (RIBA) Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 30th in a ceremony at the Elks Lodge in West Greenwich, RI. Radio host Amy Orlomoski and the Neon Valley Boys band were selected as the 2023 inductees for their lifetime achievements.
For the first time, RIBA also honored five Bluegrass Pioneers: Gertrude Hall, Randy Hawkins, Al Hawkes, and the Lilly Brothers. This new designation recognizes performing artists, bands, and industry professionals who were actively involved in bluegrass music at least 40 years ago.
