Clara Guilmette of Portland CT has won an IBMA Scholarship. She's studing music in the Connecticut Community College system. She's a very fine banjo picker. I met her a few years ago at the Joe Val Festival in Mass. where I spotted her playing the only Vega Scruggs Soloist I've seen. Best wishes to Clara.

That French-Canadian blood in her ancestry won’t hurt her either, a la Jimmy Gaudreau and others.
Clara is a fine musician and a terrific young person. Exactly the kind of individual who will make excellent use of IBMA’s support, as she does a 5 string banjo!
