Scenes from the 2024 RIBA Hall of Fame

Notable members of the southern New England bluegrass community were inducted into the Rhode Island Bluegrass Alliance (RIBA) Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 14th in a ceremony at the Elks Lodge in West Greenwich, RI. Musician and radio host Joe Gallant and the South County Ramblers band were selected as the 2024 inductees for their lifetime achievements.

RIBA also honored four Bluegrass Pioneers: Harry Cook, Dave Papuga, Bill Rawlings and J.R. Smith. This designation recognizes performing artists, bands, and industry professionals who were actively involved in bluegrass music at least 40 years ago.
