Star of the Bluegrass crowned

The two judges for the Star of the Bluegrass competition were ready for an evening of bluegrass entertainment Tuesday night at the New River Valley Fair.
Unfortunately, only one band showed up to compete.
Roger Adkins, director of the Fiddle, Banjo and Dance Club at New River Community College, and John Viers, local bluegrass legend, who had both been selected to serve as judges, didn’t have much of a task at hand in regards to judging during this event, which took place Tuesday night at the Back Porch Stage at the NRV fairgrounds.
Being the only band to compete, by default, the winners of the Star of the Bluegrass include a local band of bluegrass musicians, including Brian Cox on banjo, Glenn Scaggs on mandolin, John Benfield on guitar and Wayne Eastridge on bass.

The Star of the Bluegrass was a new talent competition created this year. It took the place of the Star of the Blue Ridge competition, which started in 2006.
